"The Oregon Trail: According to an act of Congress, the Oregon trail began in Independence, Missouri, and ended in Oregon City,     Oregon. Unofficially, the starting point could be Council Bluffs, St. Joseph, Saint Louis, or possibly other places.     The Fancher Train picked up the Oregon Trail in southern Wyoming, probably near Independence Rock."
