Pioneers on the prairies built houses out of sod if they could not find trees to use for wood.

Many of the pioneer women of the 1800's practiced "Granny Medicine". It was a strange mix of superstition, religious fervor and simple ignorance. The women, though, practiced it with great faith and not for financial gain. Some of the treatments actually brought relief, especially the herb teas, but mostly they were little better than a rabbit's foot or a four leaf clover. The biggest problem with the "Granny Remedies", was the delay of proper medical attention.

John Salmon Ford - Wikipedia

John Salmon Ford, better known as "Rip" Ford, was a member of the Republic of Texas Congress. He was also a Texas Ranger, a Confederate colonel, and a journalist. Ford commanded men during the Antelope Hills Expedition and he later commanded the Confederate forces in the last engagement of the American Civil War, the Battle of Palmito Ranch. It was a Confederate victory, but as it occurred more than a month after Robert E. Lee's surrender it had no effect on the outcome of the war.
