Others might be going to the West because the gold I herd there is a lot of gold and a lot of people are going for it because they are poor and would love to bring home a treat for there family's. Also I herd that a lot of people are clamming that there is not enough room for them to build bigger and better houses and farms (I think there is plenty of room). The last reason I know of is that people want free religion. I know that people told us that they wanted to bring Christianity to the Indians.
Before I got here I was very poor there was no rich soil I fell apart I had to spend days in the field getting seeds planted and to make them grow impossible!
