Run of 1889
On April 22, 1889 at high noon the bugles sounded, guidons of a unit of the United States Cavalry were lowered & about 40,000 people rushed across the restraining lines to stake their claims to the unassigned lands of Oklahoma country. They traveled by horseback & in covered wagons & buggies. Some walked; many rode the Santa Fe Railroad to Oklahoma station, now Oklahoma City.

They were imbued with the same dream that brought the first settlers to Jamestown, the pilgrims to Plymouth Rock & succeeding generations to the great west. The dream of a new land, a new hope, & a new life.

Laura Fraser captures this dream in the bronze bas relief of her celebrated Run of 1889 cast from a mold of the original plaster model in the national Cowboy Hall of Fame. While it pictures only a few of the intrepid who made the run it speaks of all those of all the ages who dared to hope & to dream & had the courage & spirit to make their dreams come true.
