The October 2014 line-up:
YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK – In order to preserve the Yosemite area, the federal government gave the area to California. But, they did such a poor job; the government had to take it back.
AL JENNINGS – Here’s a lawyer who felt that, in order to defend a criminal, you first have to experience what it’s like to be one.
BATTLE OF GONZALES – In 1835, when Mexico was confiscating the guns of the Texans, the village of Gonzales refused to give them a cannon. This is considered Texas’ first battle for independence.
ELLIS BEAN – During his life, Ellis had one of the most unique relationships with Mexico. Over the years he was an enemy, jailed and a resident of the country to our south.
TOM BELL HANGED – A number of men, and women, were hanged by vigilantes in the Old West. But none approached it the Tom Bell did.
DORA HAND KILLED – Dora was able to walk both sides of the street as a soiled dove, and church member. Unfortunately, a spurned lover did her in.
HICKOK SHOOTS DEPUTY – The most regrettable and last person Wild Bill Hickok killed was his own friend and deputy.
NAPOLEON JENNINGS – Texas Ranger, Jennings went to notify some fellow rangers that they were to be ambushed by outlaws, only to find he was the target of the people he was trying to save.
MARKSMAN HOLLIDAY – Although Doc Holliday was known as a shootest, in reality his shooting skills were merely stories told by Doc and his friends.
TEXAS ANNEXED – Over the years the United States has had many opportunities to be an imperialist nation and annex other countries; back in 1845 we actually did that.
TEXAS RANGERS FORMED – In 1835 rebels revolting against their mother country formed a group of armed and mounted men to protect the borders. That group is still in existence.
CASSIUS HOLLISTER – Lawmen hate to be called on a family disturbance. Deputy U. S. Marshall Hollister got called on one to many.
SUTRO TUNNEL – Adolph Sutro found a way to get silver out of Comstock mines in Nevada, and although he wasn’t a miner, he made good money doing it.
CAMILLO ORLANDO HANKS – With the changing face of cattle ranches during the later part of the 1800’s many a cowboy found himself out of work. And, like Hanks, they ended up going down the outlaw trail.
LOST DUTCHMAN MINE – Jacob Waltz was either the world’s greatest prankster or the world’s greatest secret keeper. It’s a question thousands of people have tried to discover.
O. K. CORAL I, II, III – The true story behind the O. K. Corral shootout…the causes, the shootout itself and the aftermath.
BARBED WIRE – This product, developed by a man in Illinois, was responsible for changing the face of the West, and make the cowboy a farm hand.
DENVER, COLORADO – Old West boomtowns often disappeared as fast as they appeared. Denver, Colorado is one of the few exceptions.
CALIFORNIA JOE – California Joe became George Custer’s chief of scouts one day and was fired the next.
RICHARD CLARK – As a young boy Richard knew what he wanted to do for the rest of his life. You’ll be surprised when you discover what it was.
CRUZ VEGA – Even though the Bible teaches that vengeance belongs to God, Reverend Mains made sure the supposed killer of a fellow minister got human vengeance.
