Providing for the Trail

What was one way the Pioneers earned money on the trek west?
a.                  Put on a road show for the towns they passed through
b.                  Have the company band play in the towns they passed through
c.                   Asked for donations in the towns that they passed through
d.                  Provide an Elder to preach in the towns they passed through
Yesterday’s answer:
b.   Winter Quarters, Nebraska
Winters Quarters is sometimes referred to as Mormonism’s “second Sacred Grove” and America’s “other Valley Forge.” It was also Nebraska’s first city.
