Myers drove his first herd of Longhorns north to Salt Lake City.
The first post-Civil War cattle drives from Central Texas went in
many directions, including east. Here, "stock-farmers"
and "stock-drivers" guide their Longhorns across a
river near the Texas/Louisiana border. "Cowboys" didn't
come into common use until the 1880s. From Harper's Weekly,
October 19, 1867. The sketch is by the noted Civil War battlefield
artist, A.R. Waud.
