Description
The telecourse, hosted by Dean Lewis, begins with clips from Oklahoma Passage docudrama - Enabling Act, the act that allowed the two territories (Indian and Oklahoma) to become one. Constitutional convention - overwhelmingly represented by democrats. Talk of separate states, state of Sequoyah for Indian Territory, state of Oklahoma for Oklahoma Territory. Ended up with just one state, Oklahoma. Prohibition, suffrage, and county boundaries were the significant issues at the OK constitutional convention. Two counties named after the president of the Constitutional Convention, "Alfalfa Bill" Murray: Alfalfa County and Murray County. OK had the longest constitution ever seen; it was ratified by the state and OK achieved statehood in 1907. Move of the state capital from Guthrie to OKC, moved the state seal from Guthrie to OKC under the cover of night. Summary
