A Fiiting Tribute to the Greatest Lawmen in History
on January 13, 2012
This isn't just for Texans although it should increase every Texan's Texas Pride. The feats of the Rangers almost defy belief and this video shows them in all their glory - from hunting down Bonnie and Clyde to one Ranger facing down 15,000 Ku Klux Klansmen in Waco to the Rangers almost singlehandedly winning the Mexican-American War. The darker pages in Ranger history - in particular the period during the Mexican Revolution of the early 20th Century are not glossed over but are placed in their proper context.
The Rangers were tough men but Texas was a tough place those days. As the author and historian T. R. Fehrenbach explains they were almost always outnumbered by opponents who didn't take prisoners. The men of the Rangers deserve to be remembered and this DVD does it well.
