world pictures The Heartland State: Oklahoma: Oklahoma City Eastside

Here's the southwest quarter of Section 34, where the Rock Island yard cuts across the so-called Military Addition. That name is no mystery: this quarter-section was home to four companies of U.S. infantry troops, plus some cavalry, all literally sidetracked here on April 21, 1889, the day before the land run. By 1894, the troops were gone, and the land had been turned over to the city, surveyed, and sold.
