Lawyer, politician, land developer, speculator and newspaperman, Edward Preston McCabe arrived in Oklahoma Territory in 1889 in search of a dream: to provide African Americans a safe space to prosper and thrive in the turbulent post-Civil War era. From co-founding the town of Langston to becoming Logan County's first treasurer and then Secretary of the Territorial Assembly, E.P. McCabe was a leader for all Oklahomans. This week on LoyalTV, join us in Guthrie to see how his presence in Oklahoma endures even today.
