Many claims would prove very false, in this atlas. It's said that the Indian Tribes have essentially nearly disappeared and all Indian governments were dissolved.

The lakes we now know best, were not even dreams, in 1920. It was largely the efforts of the US govt. that got Oklahoma's great flood control and navigation system. Only the Grand River Dam Authority was a true state program.
I'll leave you with this huge slide show, to read the atlas for yourself. I've also compiled a PDF file, if you wish to view and save your own copy.
