Bourland in North Texas and Indian Territory During the Civil War: Fort Cobb, Fort Arbuckle & the Wichita Mountains
Events scheduled -- handouts at my speeches
I was born in 1942 in Chickasha, Grady County, Oklahoma and raised on the south bank of Rush Creek, Garvin County OK immediately north of the Table Top Mountains cited on the Henry Jackson 1869 map on the right. I attended Davis in District #47 for eight years, a one-room school; attended both Maysville and Elmore City High; graduated in 1963 from Central State College in Edmond OK; then I was a science teacher.
My objective in compiling my 1,046-page book from handwritten records was to advance the history of North Texas and Southern Oklahoma. The events of the Civil War, especially the interrelationships of all Indian tribes, have been under-reported. I hope that this study will change the perceptions of the Civil War era in North Texas and Southern Indian Territory.
I have given about 50 speeches in which I gave every attendee a handout. The purpose of my six-page handout is to generally educate the public.. A memorable speech I gave was to a session of the Oklahoma Historical Society Convention in Ardmore OK that addressed The Civil War era along Red River.
