This is the true story of Nimrod Johnson Miller, whose life was filled with adventures that few will ever experience. Born the seventh son of a Pennsylvanian farmer, he left his home in Cass County, Georgia to join the Confederate Army at the age of 20. Serving in the 18th Georgia Regiment, he fought in every major battle from Yorktown to Gettysburg. After his capture and release from the Union Army, Nimrod left behind the world he knew for the lawless and free plains of Texas. Despite all the oppression he faced, first as a soldier in the Civil War, and through his gradual rise to Sheriff in Reconstruction-Era Texas, Nimrod never flinched from the call of duty or pursuit of justice. He was truly the stuff legends are made of.
