Here's a sneak peek at some of the fascinating facts you'll find in The Genealogist's U.S. History Pocket Reference:By the Civil War, more than 350,000 people traveled the Oregon Trail, either to Oregon or California. Of those, some 34,000 died along the way, about 17 deaths per mile. The migrant wagons carved 5-foot-deep ruts in the sandstone, which are still visible in Southern Wyoming. By the end of the Civil War, approximately half of the Regular Army soldiers were foreign-born, with the Irish comprising more than 20 percent. In 1870, the majority of the labor force was engaged in agriculture; by 1910 labor had shifted to industry and non-agricultural jobs. By 1900, women made up more than one-quarter of the non-farm labor force.
