Oklahoma Land Rush
By: Ashlee Bradley
After the race to get land I interviewed one of the people that got the best land in my opinion. Abby told me that she was one of the first people to get a horse and got the fastest and strongest horse that the person she bought from had. Abby noticed that there were some Sooners already on some of the lands but she knew they did not have the best land. She was very prepared she had enough food for her to last until she was able to eat some of her own crops. Abby also told me that she had some warmth for her and had some wheat seeds to plant. When she got to the land she had to fight over the land because Abby and a guy named Bob got there at the same time. When they got done fighting Abby had ended up killing him and putting her flag in the ground. As she went on she was there for 5 years and got the land to be hers forever. Abby grew wheat and made a grass shelter with a small chimney on the top to survive the winters that came, which was called a Sodbuster.
