HIST 208 Peer Review[edit]

I think that this contribution helped expand this topic, and as an editor, it was a very good job. Obviously an exceptional amount of research was done and it shows. The amount of references is also a good indicator of how much research was done. All the references seem credible and relate to the topic very well. One criticism I have is that fact that there is a lot of headings that only have a few sentences. I feel as if they could be combined and some of them to be simplified a bit. It would make the article flow better if they were pooled together. I like how well the geography is described and how there is a picture to accommodate. From reading this article the grammar and punctuation is well done and I have not caught any major mistakes. One other example of what would help this article would be adding a map or something that visually shows the reader where the Chilkoot Pass is. Other than these few minor details I found this article is very interesting and I feel more knowledgeable after reading it. Especially seeing as I did not have any idea where or what this Chilkoot Pass was before reading this article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tanissteinbach (talkcontribs) 16:23, 21 November 2012 (UTC)

This article was very interesting and the information added was very helpful in explaining the hardships and the conditions of that time. It was very well written and the information was thorough and was a good expansion in this article. The only suggestion I would make would be to expand on the obstacles in that I would identify some of the diseases that these men came down with. mckayaa (talk) 05:12pm, 21 November 2012 (UTC)User: mckayaa

packing charges[edit]

If it is possibly, I want to change the lines about the indian packers who only charged 1 cent per pound. From first hand source materials we know that at least in 1897 and early 1898 the indian packers dictated the prices - and they absolutly knew what their labor was worth. At the beginning of the rush they demanded 9 cents per pound. In October 1897 it raised to 25 cents per pound.
