In 1876, a 16-year-old named Ed Hicks saw Alexander Graham Bell unveil his new invention, the telephone, at the St. Louis Exposition. It was there that Ed decided he would bring this novel method of communication to his tribe, the Cherokee Nation. Ten years later, Ed's dream came true and he laid the first civilian telephone line not only in Oklahoma, but the first line west of the Mississippi River. This week on LoyalTV, join us in Tahlequah for a look at Ed's quest and success!
