Texas Trivia

In 1866, a young man by the name of Col. Charles Goodnight, a former Texas Ranger, began gathering longhorns in north Texas to take on the trail. Goodnight had been a plainsman and Indian fighter for most of his young life. He had raised and worked cattle and had attempted a drive in 1865, only to have the entire herd stampeded and stolen by Indians. Times in Texas were so bad that Goodnight had resolved to leave the country for good, taking as large a herd as he could gather to market with him. He knew that the whole of Texas would start north for market that year, jamming up those routes, so he worked out a daring plan to move his herd south then west below the main Comanche territory, across the Pecos into New Mexico and then north to the gold fields of Denver.
