|Sounds like a great trip, David. Don't want to overwhelm you with information, but here are a few links that might be helpful...
Photo album of Fort Gibson from CivilWarAlbum.com -
Fort Gibson National Cemetery is nearby. Both my parents are buried there.
A web site for Honey Springs, including directions on how to reach the battlefield from I-40 -
The web site for the 45th Infantry museum in OKC -
Across the street from this museum is the old Union Soliders Cemetery.
And if you still have time for any non-CW site trips, you might consider the Will Rogers museum in Claremore, and the former Cowboy Hall of Fame in OKC -
Rogers is buried on the museum grounds there in Claremore, and the house where he was born, moved from its original site, is only a few miles down the road.
Lots of other good places to visit, which is the problem. Any of them can take up the better part of a day all by themselves. Enjoy your trip though. It sounds great.
