The Indian Territory in the Civil War Message Board

Copy of Henry Jackson's 1869 map

You may want to magnify parts of the Henry Jackson 1869 map other than what Ken Martin and I magnified. Also, the University of Texas Archaeological Department told me that proper credits for this map is simply "Henry Jackson, 1869."

I put the entire Henry Jackson 1869 map of North Texas and Indian Territory on my website that can be seen by clicking on:

The magnified portion of the map addressing South Central Indian Territory that I included in my book (along with the entire Henry Jackson 1869 map) can be seen on:

1) Washington and Whitebead are cited on opposite sides of the the Washita River in now Garvin County, OK. ..This and a couple more contemporaneous sources proves that Confederate Major George Washington, Hereditary Chief of the Whitebead Band of the Caddoes, lived here.

2) Eureka Valley is mentioned in several pre-1880 documents about the Leased Lands, I.T. area.

3) Table Hills and Rush Creek ... I, Patti Adkins-Rochette, was raised 3 miles north of the highest lookout point of the Table Top Mountains on the south bank of Rush Creek, now Garvin County OK.

While standing on this lookout point, one can see miles east and west, up and down the Rush Creek valley plus several miles to the north. Since it is about half-way between Fort Arbuckle and Fort Sill, it was a natural post for scouts.

An oil-field road spirals to this lookout point, so getting there is no great feat, but getting out of the car may be since HUGE rattlesnakes now inhabit the area - hard to believe since as kids we went there for picnics, weiner roasts, etc., and rarely saw a snake. The land owner, who I've known all of my life, said that the snake population is markedly greater now than it was 50 years ago.

4) Beef Creek runs through a town that was called "Beef Creek," about 3 miles north of the Washita River and Beef Creek juncture. Beef Creek town is now called Maysville, Garvin County OK. ... Yours truly attended both Maysville and Elmore City high schools - our whole one-room school district was transferred, but we didnít move.

5) Signal Mountains. Today these two mounts are called Sugarloaf Mountains). TopHat Mountain is nearby. Near now Velma, Stephens County OK.

6) Wild Horse Creek. Fort Arbuckle was located on Wild Horse Creek near the Washita River juncture.

In my 20-page Gazetteer, I have listed every name, including creeks, that appears on all the 27 maps of Indian Territory included in my 1,022-page book.
