Ep. 29: The Greer County Land Grab(?)

An 1818 map was used to negotiate a boundary treaty between the United States and Spain, then Mexico, then the Republic of Texas, then the State of Texas.  The only problem was, the map was wrong!  Learn about a boundary dispute between Texas and Oklahoma that made it to the U.S. Supreme Court and beyond!

    Judge Wise,
    Jerry Langdon sent me this edition on Greer County after I was ribbig him that UT Stadium is named after an Okie! As a devout Sooner myself, I listened with great interest to the conclusion of where Greer/Harmon Co. sat, and now sits.

    As expected the 9 wise men in Washington got it right. The Prairie Dog Town Fork is the correct border of OK/TX and DK Royal was Sooner Born and Sooner Bred.

    Boomer!

      That might be a declaration of war! Thanks for listening!
