The Texas Rangers are of course, the stuff of legend. They evolved from Stephen Austins' "ranging companies" of the 1820's. Originally set up to protect the Texas frontier from Commanche raiding parties, the Rangers became a terror to any force that threatened the peace and order of Texas.
One of the more fascinating legends has to do with the Ranger badge. Apparently, the original idea was simply carved out of a Mexican coin.
This portrait of a late 19th Century Ranger exhibits the calm assurance of someone who knows he belongs to an organization with a lineage of extraordinary prowess and courage.
