The United States government surveyed the area into 6 mile square townships and mile square sections (640 acres). No federal employee, railroad employee, or person who was not authorized to be on the land could claim land. That rule was broken more than observed.

The Caddoe, Pawnee, and Wichita tribes were living in the area of Oklahoma in the 1700s. About the time the United States acquired the area through the Louisiana Purchase in 1803, other tribes such as the Quapaw, Oto, and Osage migrated to eastern Oklahoma. By 1837, the Civilized Tribes had settled most of their members in Oklahoma. [[Oklahoma Native Races|Read more...]]
