The rest of the story, after reading all the evidence Robet Demoss has presented on Round Mountain, I now understand why the State allowed the confusion to exist. According to Demoss's book, a $5000.00 donation to the OHS was given by Mr. Chapman, one of the proponents for the wrong site (Yale)with the understanding that no change could be made until his death.
Now the actual location of the Battlefield itself is covered over by two highways, the Junction of 48 and Cimmaron Turnpike. So any recovery of the Battlefield is useless. Why would the State of OK, allow the confusion to exist? Money, but not Chapman's money. Turnpike dollars from Tulsa to Stillwater. More revenue than Chapman's measley 5g's would bring. If the State allows the true location to surface, more people than I, will realize that we sacrificed a possible National Battlefield for a highway. If they recognized the Battlefield, they would have had to build around it. That would cost more money than budgeted. This may sound preposterous, but give it a think. Why else would a State Government dedicated to preserving it's history turn it's head when the correct evidence was provided.
