America - Did you know?

Going to see the Elephant. (1860s) On the California Trail, the elephant was a metaphor for the exotic sights that travelers expected to see once they reached California. As the journey began, "seeing the elephant" was a positive allusion. As life on the trail got rough, references to the elephant became more and more negative.
