11/16 – Hands on History: The Donners and other Emigrant Wagon Parties at Sutter’s Fort – Wagon travel across the Sierra Nevada was a dangerous proposition. In the winter of 1846-1847 over 80 emigrants became trapped in the Sierra snows. They are known as the Donner Party, but they were many different families and individuals. Sutter’s Fort was their destination and became their only hope of survival. Rescue parties of volunteers were assembled at the Fort, mules and packs were gathered, and a variety of food supplies were packed for the rescue. Few people are aware that the second relief party carried 100 lbs. of cocoa and 400 pounds of sugar among other more staple items. Come to the fort and hear why there is so much discussion about the Donner Party. Visitors will be able to pack a wagon or write in a journal with a quill pen, or make a corn husk or rag doll, and create their own pioneer souvenir item.
