A Concise and Accurate History of the Texas Rangers
Play • 41 min

The Bonnie and Clyde gang rode roughshod over the Central United States during the Depression in the 1930s until Texas Ranger Frank Hamer came out of retirement and ended their deadly robbery spree in an ambush.

It’s one of many cases that contributes to the worldwide reputation of the Texas Rangers.

On March 1st of 2022, Texas kicked off plans to commemorate The Texas Ranger Bicentennial in 2023.

Robert Riggs and Bill Johnston, the cohosts of True Crime Reporter™, are members of the Host Committee along with President George W. Bush and former Texas Governor Rick Perry.

In order to get a concise and accurate account of its history, Riggs went to the Official Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum.

The museum attracts 100-thousand people a year from around the globe to see its exhibit artifacts, artwork, and archives.

In this edition of True Crime Reporter™ Texas Ranger Files, here’s Riggs' interview with its Director Byron Johnson.
