Shackleford Diary - Deep Mapping

Back from an excavation vacation, Jen discusses deep mapping as a framework for studying the Shackelfords' journeys in 1865 and 1868. Included is a discussion of geography, spaces vs. places, and how Jen intends to create a Shackelford deep map for public consumption.

Shackleford Diary - End of the Road

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.

Shackleford Diary - Mr. Gatewood

Mr. Atwell Gatewood had been a widower for almost 3 years, raising 3 boys by himself, although probably with help from the Shackelfords. While in Hood county Texas, he meets and marries Miss Oxier, changing the dynamics of the group.

Shackleford Diary - Center Mills, TX

The Shackelfords and their traveling companions, the Kirklands and Gatewoods, stopped at Center Mills, Hood county, Texas for a month to rest their horses. Ruth's account of their time in Hood county can be put into context with local histories, but her descriptions of the area and events also add facts and color to those local histories.
