Chisholm Trail

The Chisholm Trail was a well-known cattle transport route. Texas cowboys used the path in driving cattle herds north to the railroads in Kansas. In 1866, a dealer named Jesse Chisholm drove a wagon from Texas to his buying and selling publish in Kansas. A yr later, cattle drivers adopted Chisholm’s wagon tracks to Abilene, Kansas. The cowboys named the path after him.

Cowboys started a collection of lengthy path drives in 1867. They moved about 1 1/2 million cattle over the path in three years. The cattle drives ended later within the 1800’s.
