The Texas Ranger is one of the most cherished symbols of the Lone Star State. While the Alamo is the undisputed symbol of Texas, the Ranger stands as an enduring symbol of the people of Texas. The Rangers were first formed to protect their neighbours from Indian attack, later they fought and died in a war for freedom, and staved off foreign invasion. Some Rangers died with glory at the Alamo, while many more were wounded, or died, in anonymity at dozens of obscure places. This volume by Dr Stephen L Hardin charts the history of this remarkable force from the 1820s through to the present day
Texian macabre : the melancholy tale of a hanging in early Houston by Stephen L Hardin( Book )

3 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mandred Wood may have caught a glint off the Bowie knife that sank into his belly - but probably not. On the afternoon of November 11, 1837, he had exchanged "harsh epithets" with David James Jones, a hero of the Texas Revolution. When words failed, Jones closed the argument with his blade. Such affrays were common in Houston, the fledgling capital of the Republic of Texas. This one, however, was singular. Wood was a gentleman and Jones a member of a disruptive gang of vagrants that the upper crust denounced as the "rowdy loafers." Jones went to jail; Wood went to his grave." "In the weeks that followed, the killing resounded throughout the squalid, verminous city that one resident described as the "most miserable place in the world." Stephen L. Hardin's suspenseful and witty narrative reads like a contemporary page turner, yet all is carefully documented history. He entwines the murder into the story of the sordid city like the strands of a hangman's rope."--book jacket

Houston : a nation's capitol( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For two hurly-burly years, the Bayou City was the capital of the Republic of Texas. As Sam Houston, Mirabeau Lamar and others squabbled over the direction in which they would lead the fledgling nation, scores of drunken, furloughed soldiers battled in makeshift saloons, on the town's muddy streets and at the dueling grounds which was located south of Texas Avenue, and therefore away from the city limits. Noted author and historian, Stephen Hardin, leads a tour of locations that serves as the backbone of this documentary. Interviews with other scholars, snippets of contemporary journals, photographs, maps, music and graphics makes this an engaging way to learn about Houston's beginnings"--Houston Arts & Media website

Spanish Texas( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Birth of Texas Series starts with Spanish Texas. It is the story of the missions, presidios and villas in this most remote part of New Spain. It is Texas Indians, some of whom converted to a life with the Spaniards, and some who most decidedly did not. The settlers in this often hostile outpost would become known as Tejanos, and they would alternately battle and cooperate with the Anglos sneaking into Texas from the east. There are filibusters and pirates, vast Texas ranchos, battles for survival and revolution against Royal Spain. This is part one of an eight part series of location based videos, called The Birth of Texas Series, that tell the story of Texas from San Felipe de Austin through Revolution, Independence, the Republic and statehood." -publisher's website

"Stephen F. Austin took over for his father in the enterprise of bringing Anglo colonists to settle under-populated Texas and provide a buffer zone for the Mexican interior. Colonists came not only from the United States, where the economy was in crisis, but also from areas in Europe. With them, they brought new customs and attitudes, new ways of agriculture and the contentious institution of slavery, something that was supported by wealthy Mexicans who had invested in Texas cotton. Relationships were established with the Tejanos, but much of Texas became an extension of American lifestyle in a Mexican nation. Communities rose up in Austin's Colony and in those lands controlled by several other empresarios. Life centered around the headquarters of his colony, complete with amenities such as a newspaper, on land that today is a county bearing his name." -- publisher's website

Goliad( Visual )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Though West Point trained, Colonel James Fannin was ill suited to leadership in battle, even by his own account. On the other hand, his Mexican counterpart in the Goliad campaign, General Jose Urrea, was never defeated in battle during the Texas Revolution. At Coleto, Fannin squandered a chance to retreat and was ultimately defeated. With the Texian captives never expecting anything less than parole, orders were sent to Goliad by Santa Anna to execute the prisoners. Urrea, wanting to distance himself from the brutality, left the task to his second in command, and over 300 Texians were marched from the fort and massacred. Amid the thick musket smoke and the confusion, 28 prisoners escaped, bringing tales of the summary executions. With only the forces under Sam Houston remaining to fight the centralist army, civilians hastily fled east toward the Sabine River and the imagined safety of the United States in a dangerous free-for-all known as the Runaway Scrape." -- publisher's website
