The Porum Range War was between the Davis brothers, Samuel Tate “Sam”, Cicero, John “Jack”, Robert Lee “Bob” and friends, versus Thomas Luther Hester, family and friends, in McIntosh and Muskogee Counties, OK Territory.
Many men died with their boots on as fences were cut, barns and houses were burned. The result of wrangling over the true ownership of cattle that roamed the fertile prairie sandwiched between the Arkansas and Canadian Rivers in southern Muskogee County, Oklahoma. – Donnie Daniels  {028}

This well researched look at the Porum Range War comes to us through the efforts of author and OWDR Contributor {028} Donnie Daniels, from his book, “Murder in Muskogee” (Muskogee County, OK). I’m not sure, and will eventually find out and report here, but I think this range war is #1 in the death toll of it’s participants. – Doc
