That Prairie Schooner I posted a photo of hardly qualifies as a wagon. It would take a hell of a big team of horses to pull that baby around.

I think they usually pulled them with oxen. Quite a few of the car manufacturers stated out with carriages. If you're ever in NW Indiana, don't miss the Auburn, Cord, Dusenberg Museum. Lots of history, beauty and mechanical genius to see. I have
not been to the Sudebaker Museum at South Bend but will be there in the next year or so. For you old hotrodders, remember when they used to put a Cadillac engine in a Studebaker body.? Studellacs , hot rod magazine.

The famous Budweiser beer wagon was made by Studebaker.

I've seen the Midwest based hitch several times. Wilson foods in Cedar
Rapids had a hitch in the 50s when I was growing up too. The guys who drove the Midwesr Bud Clydesdales were from Greely Iowa for many years. A good friend of mine has Percherons and he pulls a German made cart with ten points of air suspension. Rita took a ride with him at my 50 th high school reunion.

If you ever get the chance, check out the Studebaker museum in South Bend, IN to read all about the company that started out making wagons and moved into autos.
