Oklahoma was also once controlled by Spain


While Spanish explorers were the first Europeans to reach the Oklahoma region, France was the first to claim it.

France eventually lost their claim to the entirety of La Louisiane following its defeat in the French and Indian war in 1763.

Before the war, France had secretly made a treaty in 1762 with Spain, which handed them large portions of the territory, including the Oklahoma region.

As such, modern-day Oklahoma came under Spanish ownership instead of British.

Once again, Oklahoma was ignored by its new European stewards, who instead focused on the New Orleans region.

What are you going to do?” said Mayor Lewis. “You just rebuild stronger and better.”
