Virtual Landing After Hours: Missouri's Santa Fe Trail at 200

Just a month after Missouri officially became a state, William Bucknell and some companions loaded up and headed from Franklin, Missouri, to Santa Fe. Their excursion helped to open trade between the United States and Mexico. This new trade route would also lead to war, expanded national boundaries and an array of legends. This program will explore the history of the Santa Fe Trail as it commemorates its bicentennial, and will take viewers to some of the remaining sites along the trail in Missouri.
