A few decades back this road saw only horseshoes of the city's cowboy past, but once a cow town Oklahoma City worked really hard to re-emerge towards becoming a global destination. Actually, what is now Oklahoma City is an ''artificial product'' of American Government that forced the Five Civilized Tribes to resettle into the lands of Oklahoma.
This road became a bitter pill for people as many died in the process thus this path would latter acquire a name of ''Trail of Tears''. In the late 1800's the first "Boomers" – so-called oil well pioneers – would settle in Oklahoma that time already thriving on its oil deposits.
On April 19, 1995 another bitter pill would be swallowed when Timothy McVeigh parked a truck with explosives in front of the Alfred P. Murrah federal building. This explosion would reverberate across the world.
