Focuses on two of the bloodiest years of fighting in the young Texas Republic, 1838 and 1839. By early 1838, the Texas Rangers were in danger of disappearing altogether. This work shows how the major general of the Texas Militia worked around legal constraints in order to keep mounted rangers in service
