The Indian Territory in the Civil War Message Board

Ellen Shanon Magee interview

Another Indian Pioneer Interview, available online. Please, note the spelling.
I may have mentioned this interview before but it bears repeating. She was
a remarkable 117 years old when interviewed. Her mind was still quite sharp.
Our interest is her recollections of the Civil War and Fort Gibson/Fort Blunt.
She cooked for the officers and mentions activities in and around the post.
All in all, an interesting account.

As an aside, fellow history buffs, it has been a quiet time on the board and
I know that there is vast knowledge amongst others, just waiting to be shared.
Please, share it!
