Texas Ranger – 1873


The first Texas Rangers were formed in 1823 where each man had to “provide his own horse, rifle, pistol and 100 rounds” of ammunition. From 1823-1865, the Rangers patrolled the Texas frontier providing protection from Indians and Mexican raiders. After the Civil War, the Rangers were reformed into two distinct battalions; the Frontier Battalion which operated along the western frontier and the Special Force which patrolled the Nueces Strip to stop incurring Mexican bandits. By the 1870s, the Rangers transitioned from Indian fighters to hunting the numerous outlaws within Texas. This tradition continues today as the Texas Rangers are one of the premier law enforcement organizations in the world.
