NW Okie's Journey

This week we bring you some history of Indian Territory, and the Land Run of 22d April 1889.

"Listen, now, you people who have gone to Oklahoma for land and failed to get it; who realize now that you are face to face with the realities of a pioneer's life - its discomforts, its unrefinements, its lack of school, church and social privileges its absence of fruits, yes and the absence of crops for two years, until the sod can be turned and tamed, listen of this better land, this "sure thing." - This paragraph was taken from The Walnut Valley Times, El Dorado, Kansas, 22 April 1889, Monday, page 1.
