Scenes from afield: Hennessey, Oklahoma: historical marker describing how Pat Hennessey, a wagon freighter killed by maybe a Cheyenne war party in 1874 (nobody really knows) and remembered as a martyr to frontier settlement. When Oklahoma Territory was opened to settlement by the land run of 1889, Hennessey became the namesake of the town founded at the spot where he was killed.

Scene from afield: Hennessey, Oklahoma: Memorial to Roy V. Cashion, a local son, who was killed at the Battle of San Juan Hill in Cuba in 1898, the most famous battle of the Spanish-American War. To me this monument is distinctive because it is a rare example of a 19th century war memorial in Oklahoma. Erected less than ten years after the land run of 1889 that opened the area to settlement, it is a clear example, to me, of an affirmation by Hennessey, very much on the frontier, of its status as part of the U.S. Time and again the best way to demonstrate fealty to the nation state is to send martyrs to war.
