Oklahoma City in Oklahoma County, Oklahoma — The American South (West South Central)
Alikchi Court Grounds
The Red River Journey
William Goings was convicted of murdering Indian Deputy Sampson Goings in 1897. Although he was sentenced to death after his conviction, it was not until 1899 that the sentence was actually carried out. The US federal courts were trying to establish jurisdiction in Indian Territory during this time, and the execution was actually in violation of their attempted intervention.
Alikchi is "Medicine Man" in the Choctaw language.
