Heavener (LeFlore County) Oklahoma: and Surrounding Communities
Reconstruction and expansion after the Civil War brought much pressure to open Indian Territory for the building of railroads and for white settlement. A treaty that was much resisted by the Indians and much debated in Congress was drawn in 1866. This treaty was known as the Severalty (or Allotment) Act. It would be adopted and forced upon the Indians some twenty-one years later and would open Indian 22 Heavener Historical Society Territory to whites and end all hope of separate life and customs for the Indians.
