The Old Chisholm Trail

Thursday, March 5, 2020

Talk by Jim Hoy, professor of English, Emporia State University.
The Chisholm Trail wasn't the first, the last, the longest, nor the most heavily used of the Old West cattle trails, but it was the most famous and the most widely known because of the song the cowboys made up about it. The lyrics of "The Old Chisholm Trail" contain a composite history of trail driving, covering every aspect of a drive. Professor Hoy will give his presentation around the song and sing a few verses as illustrations. Free and open to the public.
In conjunction with the exhibition John Steuart Curry: The Cowboy Within. On view through March 21, 2020.
