Oklahoma Gold! Ep 23: First Secret Mission of the Civil War—in Oklahoma!

Did you know that the first secret mission of the Civil War took place in—Indian Territory, modern day Oklahoma? John’s good friend and pastor Wade Burleson, an award-winning author, broadcaster, and avocational historian, continues “The Burleson Chapters” of OKLAHOMA GOLD! This one is Wade’s favorite and it has everything you could want—action, adventure, suspense, the Blue, the Gray, famous Indian Territory Natives, Fort Arbuckle, the Chisholm Trail, the War Between the States, all in Oklahoma! The Burleson Chapters crackle on during John’s fourth-month sabbatical that his Red River Institute of History Board of Directors has asked him to take in order to focus wholeheartedly on completing THE OKLAHOMANS 2.

Wade and iHeartRadio star Gwin Faulconer-Lippert remind us that some of the most fascinating history doesn’t make it into the history books! “The First Secret Mission of the Civil War—In Oklahoma!” is the twenty-third episode of our weekly OKLAHOMA GOLD! radio program and podcast.

    I’m not sure if I would agree with them being “the best horse riders in the history of the world” since, you know, the fact that horses aren’t native to North America
