Shackleford Diary - End of the Road
In This Episode:
The last entry of Ruth Shackelford's published 1868 diary ends as the Shackelfords were about to cross the Red River from Texas to Indian Territory (present-day Oklahoma). From other sources, we know the Shackelfords did return to Missouri. In this episode, we'll explore their probably route for the end of their travels, summarize what happened to them after they returned to Missouri, and discuss on-going questions about their travels.
