22 March 1889, Oklahoma Proclamation To Be Issued

In March, President Benjamin Harrison had announced that land in Indian Territory called the Oklahoma District (land obtained from the Creek and Seminole that wasn't currently assigned to a tribe) would shortly be opened up to non-Native American settlers. This move came after years of eager homesteaders known as "boomers" trying to illegally settle the land; they were repeatedly removed by federal troops, but eventually the pressure on Washington from boomers, western congressmen, and railroads proved strong enough for the government to agree to allow non-Native American settlers to stake claims in the Oklahoma District.

It was 22 March, 1889 we found this mention of "The Oklahoma Proclamation Ready To Be Issued." It appeared in The Leavenworth, out of Leavenworth, Kansas, Friday morning, March 22, 1889, with the following headlines: "Within A Week."
