When I lived in Midwest City, Tecumseh and Shawnee, Oklahoma I took trips all over the State. One of the things I saw that has always stood out to me was when I visited the National Cowboy Hall of Fame also called Western Heritage Museum. It is located in Oklahoma City, OK. You will learn a lot about Native Americans and Cowboys. The name of The Statue is "The End of The Trail." The name of the Statue is "End of The Trail." They have paintings and lots of items on display. You will even see Navajo weavings There are different exhibits at different times of the year. End of the Trail: A Centennial Celebration will going on until Oct. 25th. . There are lot so things to see and do and the grounds are beautiful and have seats if you become tired of walking.

That sounds interesting .... I like those sort of museums or exhibitions...and have often seen that design on a painting or photo and wondered what the significance was....

@sueznewz2 The Trail of Tears design is when the Native Americans were gathered and made to march from the Southern states to Okalahoma, Kansas and Nebraska. It was so called beause of so many dying on the way and having to endure the long, long journey. You can read about it on line.

It is admirable and it seems a lot of people like to see artifacts from the previous generations.

I don't recognize the names you mentioned here. So then you must have also seen Tinker Air Force Base which is huge in Midwest City. It is good they took you to the Cowboy Hall of Fame which is really a visitor's mecca. There is also a place called Pawnee Bill Ranch in Pawnee, Oklahoma where you can drive through where the buffalo roam which is another interesting place to visit, I will have to write about it sometime.

Sounds like an interesting museum. I was never a fan of the old wild west, but I do have some interest in those indian tribes.

Excuse if I dare, dear, I do not know almost nothing about American history, but nevertheless, I am of the opinion that, the Cowboys were subject from which we should not take the example! Are you agree?
