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.
