April 22 last week was the 132nd anniversary of the 1889 Land Run in Oklahoma when a guestimated 50,000 settlers seeking free land rushed into the area in central Oklahoma from all directions. It was a mess.
You ever hear of the Oklahoma Sooners? Those were the people who sneaked into the territory ahead of time. Anyway, one had to find a plat of land and then run to the nearest land office and file your claim.
This monument is in Oklahoma City. I photographed several years ago and lately re-edited the photos. I understand that the monument has been added to.
