Storyboard Text

  • After the civil war there were longhorn everywhere. No one really knew what to do with them.
  • But then railroads came allowing ranchers to reach the North easier. Causing the ranching economy to boom. Which is the birth of cattle drives.
  • Many people wanted to become cowboys because of the economic profit they could get from it.
  • But since there was a lot of cattle they tore up the crops and grass around them. This angered the farmers which was the start of a brutal war between ranchers and farmers.
  • This soon ended the cattle drives ending the range war.
  • This lasted until a man named Joseph Glidden invented barbed wire. It pricked the cattle which could cause a stampede if the cattle was startled to much.
