Early History of Oklahoma

With the outbreak of the Civil War, under pressure from the armed forces of Texas, a few northerners left Oklahoma, and most of the Indian peoples entered into alliance treaties with the Confederacy. Nevertheless, already in July 1863, after the victory at the Battle of Honey Springs, the United States regained control of the Indian Territory.

After the end of the war , the US government entered into new treaties with the Indians living in Oklahoma. In the Indian Territory, slavery was banned, and some tribes that supported the Confederacy lost part of their lands. Partially, they were transferred to the “small land” peoples (Shoni, Lenape), but a large “Unallocated Territory” remained the property of the state.

In the second half of the sixties of the XIX century, huge herds of cattle began to be driven through Oklahoma from Texas to Kansas railroad stations (and further to large industrial cities, primarily Chicago and New York). The most popular route for cowboys escorting cattle was the Chisholm Trail, named after Jesse Chisholm, who traded with the Indians and paved the way to the north. In 1870, the first railroad crossed Oklahoma.

At that time, Oklahoma was a haven for criminals, numerous murderers, robbers and horse thieves were hiding from justice here. In 1875, Isaac Parker was appointed judge in the federal district court of Fort Smith, Arkansas, and Indian Territory was also included in his jurisdiction. Parker, with the support of several sheriffs, launched a war on crime in Oklahoma, he even received the nickname “Hanging Judge” from journalists for a large number of death sentences. Nevertheless, he achieved his goal – Oklahoma ceased to be a “territory outside the law.”

In the late 1970s and early 1980s, Oklahoma’s “unallocated land” became more and more attractive to white settlers. There was even a movement of “boomers” who claimed land on the basis of the “Homestead Act”. This law, passed by the US Congress in 1862, during the Civil War, guaranteed land to any adult American who had not previously taken up arms against the government. Nevertheless, the “distribution” of unoccupied land in Oklahoma did not officially begin until 1889.
