Ejecting An "Oklahoma Boomer"
The black cavalrymen depicted in this cover iluustration for the March 28, 1885 issue of Harper's Weekly were members of the 9th Regiment of the U.S. Cavalry. Stationed on the border of the Indian Territory, the 9th Cavalry was charged with preventing "Boomers" from settling lands which were set aside "...to the use of friendly Indian Tribes forever." Only four years later, the U.S. Government, bowing to intense pressure, opened these lands to white settlement and the Oklahoma Land Rush began.
