B/W Movie of family crossing the Oregon Trail

493 views#1 Movies

I saw this film in elementary school in the late 1960s early 1970s. It’s narrated by the son of a family that travels across the Oregon Trail. The one scene that I remember for sure. During a raging thunderstorm, as the father tries to get their covered wagon up a small hill. He takes the family organ and throws it off the wagon and it goes crashing down the hill. He tells his wife that he had to because it was killing their horses/oxen. Need the name of the film.
thank you

I do not think it’s Seven Alone. the movie that I’m trying to find is a black and white released in the late 50s early 1960s I saw this in L.A. city school district a couple of times. I left that grade school in ’72 dave
