Did you know that in 1842 I was chosen to map the route west from Mississippi to South Pass.

Did you know I had a nickname the "pathfinder" because I made paths through the Sierra Mountains. That is aslo why I am an person in U.S. history even to this day. That is also what I have accomplished.

I bought Rancho Mariposas in 1847 and found gold on my property and I became a weathy man. Did you also know I got married in 1841 to a girl named Jessie. I also wrote books with my wife about my journeys. I also caught in the Rockies in winter and eleven of my men died.
