I just rewrote the Steamboats in Oklahoma section, which, to be kind, was confusing. It said the federal government had removed the Cherokee, Choctaw and Creek from the Oklahoma implying these were river boats. I assume what should be said was something about those Nations being forcibly removed to Oklahoma. I'm not sure about the possibility or boat traffic above Webbers Falls but I am not an Oklahoma or even steamboat specialist.
