Denton, Texas University of North Texas Press 2012 1574414674 / 9781574414677 First Edition; 1st Printing, Hardcover with dust jacket. As New in As New dust jacket 
This is a First Edition in Fine, as new (AN) , condition. In 1874, the Texas legislature created the Frontier Battalion, the first formal, budgeted organization as an arm of state government of what historically had been periodic groups loosely referred to as Texas Rangers. Initially created to combat the menace of repeated raids of Indians from the north and from Mexico into frontier counties, the Battalion was led by an unusual choice: a frail, humorless Confederate veteran from Navarro County, John B. Jones. Under Jones’s leadership, the Battalion grew in sophistication, moving from Indian fighting to capturing Texas’s bad men, such as John Wesley Hardin and Sam Bass. Established during the unsettled time of Reconstruction, the Rangers effectively filled a local law enforcement void until competency was returned to local sheriffs’ and marshals’ offices. 399 pages, notes, bibliography, index. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 399. pages
