    Recognizing the Great Western Trail Historical Significance:  John T. Lytle launched the Great Western Trail 
    that lasted nineteen years and its path grew to 2,000 miles extending north from Mexico into Canada. Some 
    six-million longhorns and one-million horses supplied three markets:  1. fulfill government contracts for cattle  
    and horses for reservations and the military, 2. longhorns and horses to stock vast unoccupied grasslands in the 
    northern states as well as two Canadian provinces, 3. beef for easterners.
