Overview

Most of Oklahoma was included in the Louisiana Purchase, a deal in which France sold a large portion of land to the United States. When Oklahoma was opened up for settlement to non-Native Americans, the government held a "land run" allowing fifty thousand people to run or ride through the territory to claim land for themselves-much of it formerly inhabited by Native people.

Murrah Federal Building.
