福特西渥德(Fort Seward)的篷车队伍
地方性遗产

您知道篷车队伍是什么吗

19世纪时,美国境内的殖民若想要搬离西部地区,他们通常会集结成群并搭乘架有棚子的四轮马车进行旅程。人们会在早春时集合并在四轮马车队伍正式启程前,雇用向导、选出领袖并集结日常用品。

每年夏季,位于北达科他州,詹姆斯城(Jamestown)附近的福特西渥德会聚集100多人。他们会过着如当初的拓荒者家庭通用生活并重新体验四轮蓬车队伍的生涯。连续一星期的时间,他们会搭乘由骡子或马匹在前负责拖拉,架有篷顶的马车。他们的餐点则由一台装有食物的篷车负责供应。参加此趟旅程的乘客会身穿19世纪晚期的服装,女士会穿上长裙、围裙,头戴有带子的帽子,而男士则会穿上背心及背带。每天晚上,蓬车会面向营火围成一个圆圈,而领队的骑士则会跟他人分享他的故事、音乐及工艺品,就像一世纪以前,早期的美国拓荒者所做的事一般。


Do you know what a wagon train is?

During the 19th century, settlers in the United States who wanted to move out West usually traveled by covered wagons in large groups. People would meet in the early spring to hire guides, elect leaders, and gather supplies before leaving on their journey as a wagon train.

Every summer, more than 100 people meet at Fort Seward, near Jamestown, North Dakota, to re-enact the wagon train experience and live like pioneer families. For a week, they travel in canvas-covered wagons pulled by mules or workhorses. A "chuck" wagon provides their meals. Everyone dresses in late-19th century-style clothing. Women wear long dresses, aprons, and bonnets, and men wear vests and suspenders. Every night, the wagons circle around a campsite, and trail riders share stories, music and crafts, just as the early American pioneers did over a century ago.
