Living in Fort Worth, TX
Following the Mexican-American War in 1846, a series of 10 forts were proposed to mark Texas's western frontier. A camp was first set up along the Trinity River in summer 1849, which eventually was moved to the bluff where the present-day Courthouse sits. It was named in honor of Major General William Worth who played a vital role in the war. He died in 1849 of cholera. When it became a stop on the Chisholm Trail, which was used to drive millions of cattle north to market, the city found its niche. It became a hub of the cattle and ranching industries, which earned it the early nickname of "Cowtown."
The city cycle through periods of boom and bust. With the arrival of the railway in 1876, Fort Worth was again on the upswing and the Fort Worth Stockyards were integral to the cattle industry. However, the city quickly earned an unsavory reputation as a place where cowboys were easily parted from their money. It wasn't until 1917 that the city's notorious reputation began to change. The federal government had set up Camp Bowie nearby and teamed with a new city administration to roust out the city's worst elements.
