Please add profiles of those who were born, lived or died in Muskogee County, Oklahoma.

The county was formed in 1907 and was named for the Muscogee (Creek) Nation. The official spelling of the name was changed to Muskogee by the post office in 1900.

At the start of the U. S. Civil War, Confederate troops of the Cherokee and Creek Home Guards built Fort Davis, across the Arkansas River from Fort Gibson. Federal troops attacked and destroyed Fort Davis in 1862, driving the Confederates from this area, although a few skirmishes occurred later in the war at Bayou Menard Skirmish (1862), several at Webbers Falls (1862), and the Creek Agency Skirmish (1863).
