Description

In 1872, the MK&T Railroad crossed the Red River into Texas and created the town of Denison as a railhead for a new frontier territory. Cattle drovers soon arrived with their herds, and settlers crowded onto trains bound for Texas. This book brings to life the vibrant energy of those early years—the rowdy nightlife, memorable characters, nascent cultural institutions, investment opportunities, schools, churches, and a rapidly filling cemetery. Illustrated with a wealth of pictorial material, these pages document technological innovation, women's roles, and a rich mixture of nationalities, cultures, and races. Denison was a microcosm of post–Civil War life on the Texas frontier.show more
