Why is the chisholm trail important?
The Chisholm Trail was important because it is how cattle were driven from Texas to Kansas before the railroad expanded. It was the main route ranchers used and it allowed them to get beef to the Northeast and the sale of cattle helped Texas get out of the poverty left over from the Civil War.

The Chisholm Trail was used as a route for cattle driving. It was utilized from Texas to Kansas in the 1800s.
Cows, cowboys, wranglers and Native Americans all used the trail between Texas and Abilene beginning in 1867 as a cattle trail. The route is named for Jesse Chisholm who used …existing Indian routes which generally follow the Current US Highway 81 across Oklahoma from the Red River to Kansas. Chisholm established a series of trading post in Oklahoma which supplied the route although he never used the trail himself to drive cattle to market.
In the late 1800s the Chisolm trail was used to drive cattle by cowboys. The cowboys originated in Texas and drove the cattle to Kansas to be sold.
