The Old Chisholm Trail: From Cow Path to Tourist Stop

Course Description

Controversy over the name and route of the Chisholm Trail has persisted over time; and the popularity of late nineteenth-century Wild West shows, dime novels, and twentieth-century radio, movie, and television western drama has propelled the bygone era of the cattle trail into myth. The rise of automobile tourism, potential economic impact of tourists, and the appearance of numerous "historical" markers based on little more than hearsay contributed to the Chisholm Trail legend. Primary documents and sources that may have been unavailable to previous historians will be used to offer a new look at the Old Chisholm Trail.
