How many times have you wished you hadn’t said something. But words once spoken cannot be erased like magic. And half-ass researching about a Subject only to provide your audience with a heavily biased opinion is sad. But people do it every minute of the day and night. Some have Podcasts putting out twisted truths to burn your ears with. But that’s what people like. People live hearing the Ear Stretching Tales and yet, sometimes the truth alone will seem quite unbelievable.
If you get down to the brass tacks, nothing amazes me more than how Texas Newspapers wrote Articles which were then put into everybody’s minds. In the 1800s, it was wide Open. Here is an example of a Need for a Slave in the bottom right corner of the page from Eastern Texas Gazette (Jefferson, Tex.), Vol. 1, No. 10, Ed. 1 Saturday, March 14, 1857 Page: 1 of 4
The following I found after Researching Texas Rangers for a couple of days. And it is not truly representative of them at all. Why do this? Because every time you look up Texas Rangers on the Internet, the reader is bombarded with anti-Texas Ranger Disgust. They only show what they want to show you. But that leaves out the complete picture. It would cost $100,000 or More and a ton of Researchers to show a Glimpse of that time period. And some have already done that.
But always know that bad did happen but good did too. Otherwise, Texas Gunslingers would still be having Shootouts on the streets in Public.
But please, take the time to research all that you can find. Old Newspapers offer glimpses of the past and some make Liars out of some folks. Maybe you can find things that others have never seen. Try it…
