Summary

Oklahoma's saga is collectively a triumphant one. Consider one of Oklahoma's darkest chapters, the forced removal of thousands of Indians along the Trail of Tears in the 1830s. Today, descendants of those survivors are proud leaders and working class heroes in their respective nations and communities. They honor their ancestors by living productive lives, raising families, and never forgetting to pass down the tribal stories to the next generation. This book offers a Civil War battle through the eyes of an Indian Territory slave, the bloody history of a Mexican captive, and a slightly new twist on the Buffalo Wallow Fight when a handful of soldiers made a desperate last stand against hundreds of warring Indians. The Buffalo Wallow Fight is a fine example of the promotional juggernaut known as Texas. True, the Buffalo Wallow Fight occurred in the Texas Panhandle, but nearly every participant?white and red?hailed from Oklahoma.
