In early 1889, the Unassigned Lands in Oklahoma were officially opened for settlement. A massive land rush followed almost immediately afterward.

Oklahoma City sprung up literally overnight, as nearly 10000 settlers claimed the valuable land in the area.

Many lawsuits arose in the days that followed, including Smith v. Townsend, which caused many settlers that had laid claims in Oklahoma City before the area was been opened for settlement to lose their lands.
