"History of the Regulators and Moderators and the 1841-42 Shelby County War and Some of the Indian Troubles in the Early Republic of Texas" by John Middleton, a Texas Ranger Captain. It is an eyewitness account of some of the early history of Texas by an early pioneer. John Middleton was a Captain in the Sabine County Ranging Company. He gives a first-hand account of the Regulators and Moderators War in Shelby County as well as the ever present need to safeguard the homes, people, and livestock of the early settlers from the attacks of the various Indian Tribes in Texas.
An interesting part of the romantic history of both the Texas Rangers, the state of Texas, and the men who forged Texas. A short book of approximately 20,000+ words, that is very rare, expensive, and long out-of-print in its original 1883 bound version. We have now made it available in the e-book format for the reader interested in Texas and Texas Ranger history.
There are approximately 20,000+ words and approximately 66+ pages at 300 words per page in this e-book.
NOTE: This book has been scanned then OCR (Optical Character Recognition) has been applied to turn the scanned page images back into editable text. Then every effort has been made to correct typos, spelling, and to eliminate stray marks picked up by the OCR program. The original and/or extra period images, if any, were then placed in the appropriate place and, finally, the file was formatted for the e-book criteria of the site. This means that the text CAN be re-sized, searches performed, & bookmarks added, unlike some other e-books that are only scanned---errors, stray marks, and all.
We have added an Interactive Table of Contents & an Interactive List of Illustrations if any were present in the original. This means that the reader can click on the links in the Table of Contents or the List of Illustrations & be instantly transported to that chapter or illustration.
