Photograph showing covered wagons pulled by oxen and horses traveling in a pageant in Meacham, Oregon on July 3, 1923. The pageant, attended by President Warren G. Harding and First Lady Florence Harding, was part of events commemorating the anniversary of the first wagon train crossing of the Blue Mountains. The pageant depicted people and events in the history of whites’ arrival and settlement in Oregon. The Oregon Journal published a story about the commemoration and the Hardings’ Meacham visit, headlined “President Dedicates Oregon Trail in Midst of Colorful Setting,” on the front page of the July 3, 1923 edition.
