In Response To: 1860: Creek Nation, Indian Lands, Arkansas ()
So that no one is confused, Cow Tom did not live in Arkansas. In accordance with federal law, the laws of the state of Arkansas were extended over the Indian Territory when a case came before the federal courts. Indian Territory was then considered a part of the legal structure of that state. Just a note to keep things str8.
