Anniversary of the Oklahoma Land Rush!

Did you know…

… that today is the anniversary of the Oklahoma Land Rush?
The first Oklahoma land rush began at noon in 1889. More than
50,000 people took part. A number of the people who
participated in the run entered the unoccupied land early and
hid there until the legal time of entry to lay quick claim to
some of the choicest homesteads. These people came to be
identified as “Sooners.”
