Thanks for the Desert Tracks reference. I suppose Hi Jolly's tracks are still visible along the Beale Camel Road in Arizona and California.
I believe the "official" Federal name for the 1859-60 Beale Wagon Road thru Indian Territory is "The Fort Smith to Albuquerque Wagon Road" courtesy of the June 12, 1858 federal funding by the U.S. Army shown below:
THIRTY-FIFTH CONGRESS, Session I, Ch. 156, 1858, Sec. 1, p. 336 of U.S. Statutes at Large, Volume 11, p. 809, found in Google Books:
June 12, 1858 – An Act making Appropriations for the Support of the Army for the Year ending the thirtieth of June, eighteen hundred fifty-nine. Approved, June 12, 1858.
“For the construction of bridges and the improvement of the crossings of streams on the road from Fort Smith, in Arkansas to Albuquerque, in New Mexico, fifty thousand dollars; and that the sum of one hundred thousand dollars be, and is appropriated out of any money in the Treasury not otherwise appropriated, to be expended in completing connected sections of the road extending from Albuquerque, in the Territory of New Mexico, westward, on the route to the Colorado River, on, or near the thirty-fifth parallel of north latitude.”
Sometime after the Civil War, our BWR thru IT became known as the "Fort Smith to Fort Reno (wagon) Road".
I personally like "Beale Wagon Road" as a general reference name, however,-- the one that had the six Whipple iron bridges.
