In April, 1872 what is believed to be the deadliest civilian gunbattle in American history took place in what is now eastern Oklahoma. Next month the United States Marshals Museum will host a two-day symposium about the Goingsnake Tragedy and the issues of sovereignty still discussed 150 years later.
