Five land runs, one lottery and an auction, between 1889 to 1895 was needed to dispose of the unassigned lands of Oklahoma Territory.
After the Runs, Indian Territory in the Eastern section and Oklahoma Territory in the Western part of what now is Oklahoma finally joined together and petitioned Congress to become a State. November 16, 1907, we became the 46th State in the Union!
Two wheeled racing sulkies were actually used in the run.
We greatly enjoyed getting out and about for the day to see a little part of OKC. Photo opportunities were many! Lighting was not the most favorable but I worked with what I had. I have several other pics from this shoot and will show some at later times as individual shots. Thanks for all the nice comments that were generously given as we walked and boated and tried to show snapshot views from this slice of the Capitol City!
