Presenter: Fort Smith National Historic Site ranger Cody Faber

Discover the backstory of Fort Smith, including Indian Removal and the creation of Indian Territory. Learn how the Civil War tore Indian Territory and western Arkansas apart, and how the eventual court system at Fort Smith came about. All of this will lead up to the time period of True Grit as our presenters delve into Facts v Fiction. This entertaining presentation will be heavily laced with true-to-life stories similar to those that True Grit was based upon.

This event is in partnership with the Oxford American’s celebration of 50 Years of True Grit.
