The Santa Fe Trail Bicentennial is a commemoration of a living part of the American Experience.  The Trail remains crucial to American history in all its many forms:  connecting people in commerce, conflict, and culture.  The Bicentennial creates opportunities for education, awareness, and exploration of the countless facets of the American Experience past, present, and future.
