Spring, 1842. America's unclaimed and unexplored land drew thousands of settlers to the West, including the Sager family. Travelling from Missouri to Oregon, both parents succumbed in the untamed wilderness—the father from blood poisoning, and mother from pneumonia. Their seven children courageously continued the journey their parents began, a feat that truly defines "pioneer." A heartwarming adventure film for the whole family, this is the amazing true story of the Sager children on the Oregon Trail.

This is a good movie, but it leaves out a lot of details, especially about what happened to the children when the movie ended.
John Sager was the oldest child, and he was only 13 - - but, in those days, you could be thought of as a man at that age - - when both of their parents died, he took on the responsibility of raising his 6 siblings. The youngest was only 3 months old.
The movie implied a happy ending - - that the children ended up living on land that Kit Carson held for them by the government and that they built a house there - - that was their dream, but that is not what happened.
What really happened was that the children stayed with the Whitmans for about two years - - and then the Whitmans and John and Francis and Luisa were killed by Indians.
The remaining girls - - Catherine, Elizabeth, Matilda, and Henrietta - - lived into old age.
