Designated as part of the Cherokee Outlet, it was named County L in Oklahoma Territory at the time of its opening to non-Indian settlement. A county election renamed it for U. S. President Ulysses S. Grant. Grant County was part of the Cherokee Nation's Cherokee Outlet until it was opened to non-Indian settlers in response to public demand on September 16, 1893. Settlers named the county after President Ulysses S. Grant in a general election held November 6, 1894.

In 1897 the Gulf Railroad linked Manchester, Wakita and Deer Creek. At the start of the 20th Century the Blackwell and Southwestern Railroad passed through Lamont.

EZTV

EZTV was a TV torrent distribution group founded in May 2005 and dissolved in April 2015, after a hostile takeover of their domains and brand by "EZCLOUD LIMITED". It was founded in response to btefnet via lawsuit; the group was founded by a loose coalition of volunteers and holds no formal ties to its predecessors. In the aftermath of the takedown of TVTorrents and btefnet, the BitTorrent community felt a need for a site that moderated its content; the two groups were known to never provide any fake links, a problem that used to be quite prevalent on public bittorrent sites prior to improvements in community-powered filtering in recent years. A group of volunteers gathered in the IRC channel #EZTV on the EFnet IRC network to create a TV torrent group from scratch in order to fill this void in the public bittorrent scene; the idea behind EZTV was to create a group that would pick up where its two predecessors left off while avoiding what they considered the "weak spots" that had brought them down.

This meant that EZTV should never host its own torrent files, its leadership structure should be dynamic and opaque to avoid presenting any obvious target for litigation, the group should not host or run its own tracker. In addition, it was decided that EZTV should be a purely non-profit group by never asking for money of any kind from its users and to never have advertisements to avoid "profiting from piracy" litigation; this means that EZTV is run on a volunteer basis. This clean, no-ads profile of EZTV has made the site a popular destination for the public torrent scene. During its first years of operation, EZTV hosted its site under the domain name eztvefnet.org. However, in October 2007 that domain began redirecting to a Google query for "eztv". Citing "administrative issues", EZTV had lost control over that domain and has redirected users to eztv.it. After the Italian authorities took down the EZTV.it domain, users were directed towards eztv.ch, until the eventual demise. In April 2008 the old domain name was taken over by a different site.

By many accounts, EZTV was for a few years plagued with several periods of – sometimes prolonged – downtime. On 9 December 2014, The Pirate Bay was raided by the Swedish police, who seized servers and other equipment and resulted in EZTV going down. By the 11th of December, EZTV was releasing torrents again although the main site was not yet accessible with the regular domain, however the site could be reached through eztv proxy sites; as of 22 December 2014 EZTV was accessible again through the EZTV.ch domain for some weeks. Since October 2007, EZTV was using the EZTV.it domain name. But under pressure from copyright holders, the Italian.it registry lodged a complaint over some paperwork. Facing a possible confiscation of the EZTV.it domain name, they saw no other option than to switch to a new domain. The EZTV.it domain name was suspended, a couple of months was taken over by scammers attempting to claim EZTV as their own. But unlike the real EZTV this.it domain opens windows with advertisements.

As of 25 April 2015, the EZTV.ch and the EZTV-Proxy.net the "semi" accepted proxy are under control of "EZCLOUD LIMITED". With the takeover of the EZTV.ch domain and the EZTV-Proxy.net proxy, the scam group "EZCLOUD LIMITED" started attempts to take over the online identities by impersonating them on their own clone of the original websites, further assimilating the brand name and disrupting the workings and communication of the original group and attempting to gain revenue via an unofficial EZTV Bitcoin and adverts on these hijacked sites. "EZCLOUD LIMITED" gained access to the EZTV.se domain via the registrar and reset Novaking's information allowing them access to the domain accounts for EZTV, using this access they hijacked the EZTV domains and locked Novaking out. The original EZTV website was retired around on 29 April 2015 with the topic of the IRC channel where EZTV was discussed saying: "DO NOT USE THE SITES! They are not ours anymore. Thanks for all the fish." As of 5 May 2015 Rarbg, BT-Chat, other sites have removed EZTV as an affiliate and are taking steps to stop "EZCLOUD LIMITED" indexing releases.

KickassTorrents, BT-Chat and The Pirate Bay have since suspended or deactivated the official EZTV accounts and added warning to the old releases ex-EZTV staff continue their warnings that people should avoid the scam site, left behind. Over the years, EZTV has participated in several partnerships. EZTV and fellow TV torrent distribution group VTV acted as competition across the board but with different approaches. Over time, however, it has become clear that the two groups cooperate in some ways since VTV distributes releases that EZTV does not do via EZTV's IRC channel and website. In summer of 2008, EZTV and the documentary torrent distribution group MVGroup initiated a partnership that saw MVG's torrents distributed by EZTV on their IRC channel and website; the agreement benefited both sides, as MVG gained increased exposure and a vastly improved seeder base while EZTV expanded the list of shows available through them. In a statement to TorrentFreak, MVGroup admins said they "would like to take this opportunity to thank EZTV in helping us continue our founder's legacy, to spread high quality educational material via p2p, to everyone, for free".

One month prior to this announcement, MVG's founder Merrin had died after prolonged illness. The Creative Commons media distributor VODO has for a long time held a prominent position on the EZTV site. EZTV was one of the first torrent groups to offer VODO exposure to their audience, along with The Pirate Bay, isoHunt and others. One notable exception to the no-fakes mechanic was a 2008 April Fools' Day prank, where a release was posted on EZTV's web

James Tate (headmaster)

James Tate was the headmaster of Richmond School and canon of St Paul's Cathedral, London. He was born in Richmond, North Yorkshire on 11 June 1771, the only surviving son of Thomas Tate, a working maltster from Berwick upon Tweed, his wife, Dinah Cumstone, who came from a family of small farmers in Swaledale. Having attended two private schools, in May 1779, Tate entered Richmond School. Whilst there, the headmaster Reverend Anthony Temple recognised his talent, in 1784 found him a job as amanuensis to the rector of Richmond Francis Blackburne. Enjoying access to Blackburne's library acted as a stimulus for Tate, who with Temple's help obtained a sizarship at Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge. Tate was appointed headmaster of Richmond School on 27 September 1796, the fulfillment of a childhood ambition. Tate was responsible for transforming Richmond School into one of the leading classical schools of its day, the leading Whig school, attracting boys from throughout the country, at a rate of 100 guineas a year.

Between 1812 and 1833 six pupils a year on average proceeded to university. 21 of them became 13 of them at Trinity College, Cambridge. They became so "successful and feared" whilst at Cambridge that they earned the title of ‘Tate's invincibles’, their number included Richard Sheepshanks, Marcus Beresford and James Raine. Another pupil was Herbert Knowles. Tate rejected corporal punishment for his pupils, refused to rule by fear, but instead inspired in them a love of learning. Tate was a respected classical scholar. Robert Surtees, the Durham antiquary, recalled a night spent with him quoting from The Iliad, Sydney Smith, who by chance travelled in the same coach as Tate, declared to a friend that Tate was "a man dripping with Greek"; the Times printed a glowing obituary, noting that "as a teacher of classical learning, none of his contemporaries were more successful".
