About the Project
Crossing Oklahoma began as a project by Robert J. Voss as an advanced history
project for Dr. William Thomas' Digital History class at the University
of Nebraska, Lincoln in the spring of 2007. It is a different approach to the history of Indian Territory and the issues faced by people in the region. The web project is supported
by the History Department at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln.
Robert J. Voss is a PhD. student at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln

humanities beyond his personal work, making them available and important to public use.
