Transcript of CATTLE TRAILS IN THE LATE 19TH CENTURY

The black cowboys of Texas were african cowhands who worked together with the Vaqueros and Anglo cowboys. Their purpose was to work on ranches throughout the state. -BY ZION LINDSEY
Who were the black cowboys of Texas
WHY WERE THE CATTLE TRAILS IMPORTANT.
The location for the Great Western Cattle Trail is in Woodward County, OK 73801.
The location for the Chisholm Trail is located in Texas to Kansas.
The cattle trails were important because people started to demand a lot of beef. So, they needed a way to get cattle from the ranches. Texas didn't have any railroads at that time, so they had to take cattle to rail heads in Kansas also because they had low supply of beef.
How the trails helped the cattle trail

THE LOCATION
The Black Cowboys were the black western Cowboys of the south in the early 1800's. What they did was that they would also capture white people who would shoot them because of there race which was really how slavery got started. - Drake Hatcher
Chisholm Trail
The Chisholm was considered to be one of the great wonders of the west. Cattle herds as large as ten thousand were driven from Texas over the trail to Kansas. The trail was named after the trader Jesse Chisholm a part- Cherokee who, just before the Civil War, built a trading post in what is now Western Oklahoma City.
The Western Trail
Ranching was introduced to America by the spanish who drove cattle from Mexico. In the 1800's Texans were looking for a way of living. There were no markets for the abundant cattle abandoned during the civil war. The Great Western Trail was developed on the simple theory of the supply and demand. The markets wanted beef because they were in great demand in markets. Then Mexico gave beef to Texas because the demand was high in Texas.
