SCV Convention, April 13, 2013, Shawnee, Oklahoma.
Oklahoma -- formerly known as Indian Territory -- is rich in its Confederate Oklahoma history and connections to the Confederacy. All five of the "Civilized Tribes" (Cherokee, Creek, Seminole, Choctaw, and Chickasaw) officially allied with the Confederate States of America and fought in the War for Southern Independence. Stand Watie, the famous Cherokee Confederate leader, was also the only American Indian on either side to rise to a Brigadier General's rank during the War.
