Willette or Willets?

There are two different sources (in External Links) that say different names. Is it Willette or Willets? I put Willette in the article because the source that gave it is a government website, but I would like clarification. - FireForEffect - 21:15, 16 April 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Battle of Middle Boggy

I had never heard of this battle referred to as the 'Battle of Middle Boggy Depot' until I read the one source. The locals leave the 'Depot' off the end of the battle name. The river was the 'Middle Boggy' and the town was 'Boggy Depot'. It seems like this article should be named the 'Battle of Middle Boggy' instead of 'Battle of Middle Boggy Depot'.

== reference:

By the time Colonel Jumper's regiment and the survivors arrived at the battlefield, Major Willets had occupied Middle Boggy, learned of the approaching Seminoles, and retreated to Colonel Phillip's camp.

However, Major Willets, following the directives he had been given, had taken no prisoners. The bodies of the wounded that Captain Nail had left behind were discovered on the ground with their throats cut. (HENCE LOCALS REFERENCE THE MASSACRE OF MUDDY BOGGY)

Major Willets reported no Union casualties. The Confederate dead numbered forty-seven. They were buried near the battlefield. (talk) 21:53, 21 June 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Proposal: Name change for article "Battle of Middle Boggy"

Others have noted that the name being used is incorrect. One demonstrated this via local names, another by checking the O.R. As a result, "Middle Boggy" has been substituted for some time. I've also done an online O.R. search and gotten zero hits for "Middle Boggy Depot". In addition Kennedy's 2nd Ed. of The Civil War Battlefield Guide also lists this as "Middle Boggy." There are many mentions of the "Boggy Depot" as it was an important place. Unfortunately, the NPS American Battlefield Protection Program summary and the Oklahoma preservation report merged the two locations into one, listing "Middle Boggy" as "other names." I propose changing the name of this page to "Battle of Middle Boggy" per the common names guideline, creating a redirect for the errant NPS name.

Red Harvest, I concur with your proposal, since the Battle of Middle Boggy seems to be the more common name now. I would show the depot title as a former name. The old town of Middle Boggy Depot is a historical site and has its own article. One source ( quotes a battlefield marker saying that the depot was 12 miles from the battleground.
