Join us for Texas History Tuesdays on October 13th at 10:00 am as we take a deep dive into the history of Cattle Drives.

People associate the word "cowboy" with "Texas" beginning with one specific time period in Texas history - the heyday of cattle drives. Although this era only lasted from 1866-1890, the cattle drive era shaped the image of Texas.

Who started the cattle drives, and where did the trails go? What jobs could people do on a cattle drive, and what was life on the trail like? What were the risks and benefits of driving cattle to market? Hear from a special guest speaker, an 1870s cattle driver who has traveled through time to reminisce about his cattle drive experience!

You'll be able to ask questions during the Q&A at the end of the program. No supplies are needed for this program, but some extension activities are available here under "Extension Activities" ??
