I do not know of any gag order to the press on the battle of Round Mountain. I have known and worked with Leonard Logan IV, who is the chairman of the board of the Oklahoma Historical Society for more than 14 years. He is an attorney in Vinita and is a history buff himself. He wants to get the message out about Oklahoma history, not gag it or supress it in any way. Likewise, I have known Ralph Jones, Whit Edwards and Howard McGinnis for years. All work at the OHS and all are of extremely high character. I do not think they would have waited one second to tell me about such a gag order. I worked at KOTV, the CBS affiliate in Tulsa and could have easily had Scott Thompson or some other reporter do some digging to expose such a thing at a state agency.
Likewise, I have known Robert DeMoss for a number of years as well. I think his research is outstanding. He has taken me in the field and shown me the places mentioned in all of the Texas Cavalry notes and letters. Because of this, I believe the actual battle site of Round Mountain is no where near Yale.
