TEXAS RANGERS — “A Captain Rises”
Legends of the Old West Podcast are excited to introduce the first episode in their new season, TEXAS RANGERS. The people of Texas knew the name “Texas Rangers” long before the rest of the country. But by the late 1840’s, the country, and the world, had caught up. Under the leadership of men like John Coffee Hays, Samuel Walker, and many others, the Rangers became a feared fighting force and gained international fame.

After the Texas revolution and the Great Comanche Raid, a Tennessean named John Coffee Hays rises to prominence as the commander of the Texas Rangers. Hays, along with captains Ben McCulloch, Samuel Walker and “Bigfoot” Wallace fights bandits in the Nueces Strip and Comanches on the frontier.
