A Noble Mission
During the Land Run of '89, many breathless homesteaders-to-be raced to stake their claim, only to find it long occupied by someone who arrived "sooner" than they should have. William Harn sought justice for these legitimate settlers, bringing dozens of indictments and convictions against the Sooners as a special agent of the General Land Office. This week on LoyalTV, we visit the historic Harn Homestead in Oklahoma City to pay tribute to its namesake and his contributions to our capital city.
