Episode 93! On April 14th, 1864 several families left Springfield IL for the fertile farmlands of Central California. Known as the Donner Party for their leader George Donner, the group decided to take a shortcut known as The Hastings Cutoff instead of the well established Oregon Trail. A decision many wouldn’t live to regret. Today, we’ll discuss the troubles they faced along the way, how the survivors were finally rescued, and what drove the group to cannibalism. You won't want to miss this gruesome yet fascinating episode!
