And if you like Westerns, you’ll love this one. I watched this wonderful and exciting Western Drama on AMAZON PRIME today. And the Life History of Bass Reeves is quite amazing. For the 1st Black U.S. DEPUTY MARSHAL, this man was a Legend and you need to Review his Life and Legacy. But if you’re in the need for a Western. I highly recommend this one. And here’s more information-

Reeve’s life as a contented farmer would change when the Federal Western District Court was moved to Fort SmithArkansas and Isaac C. Parker was appointed on May 10, 1875. At that time, the Indian Territory had become extremely lawless as thieves, murderers, and anyone else wishing to hide from the law took refuge in the territory that previously had no federal or state jurisdiction.

One of Parker’s first official acts was to appoint U.S. Marshal James F. Fagan as head of some 200 deputies he was then told to hire. Fagan heard of Bass Reeves’ significant knowledge of the area, as well as his ability to speak several tribal languages, and soon recruited him as a U.S. Deputy.

The deputies were tasked with “cleaning up” Indian Territory and on Judge Parker’s orders, “Bring them in alive — or dead!”
