Excerpt from Historic Resource Study: Mormon Pioneer National Historic Trail While there is nothing wrong with stressing the uncommon aspects of the Mormon westward movement, they are only part of the story. A truer account would present the Mormon migration within its proper historic context, as a part of the great westering movement of the mid-nineteenth century; as part of a national experience.
In many ways the Mormons were very much like their contemporary Oregonians and Californians. Their daily routine, their food, wagons, animals, sicknesses, dangers, difficulties, domestic affairs, trail constitutions, discipline, the blurring of sexual distinctions relative to work, and so forth, were typical.

For the most part, the Mormons used the trails already blazed by earlier westering Americans. Many Americans had preceded the Mormons on trips west of the Missouri River. This trail, however, was largely a commercial and military road, used by few emigrants. In , some Texas converts did use the trail to pick up the Mormon Trail in Wyoming. The first significant emigrant movement to Oregon began in , when sixty-nine men, women, and children, comprising the Bidwell-Bartleson party, left from Independence, Missouri.

Thereafter, increasingly large emigrant parties used the Missouri River as a "jumping off point staging site for Oregon. That same year, the Bidwell-Bartleson party also initiated the first significant emigrant movement into California.
