Abstract:

In 2009 Fort Worth unveiled an elaborate, million-dollar memorial to its fallen police and firefighters going all the way back to the city's beginnings in 1873. Fifty-eight of the ninety-five names on the memorial were policemen. Written in Blood is a more inclusive version of that idea because it covers more than just members of the Fort Worth Police Department, it includes thirteen men from all branches of local law enforcement who died defending law and order in the early years: policemen, sheriffs, constables, "special officers," and even a police commissioner. --

"This book is a must-read for anyone who enjoys history of good police stories or who wants to honor our fallen lawmen from an era gone by."--John Burpo, Executive Director, Combined Law Enforcement Associations of Texas (Cleat) --

"Written in Blood will be of significance interest especially to the law enforcement community and no doubt to others who just appreciate Fort Worth history."--J'Nell Pate, author of Livestock Legacy: The Fort Worth Stockyards, 1887-1987 --

"Written in Blood is tightly documented history of local law enforcement with both good and bad facts included. The authors are veteran researchers and writers who have a vast knowledge of local history and the customs of our community spanning decades. Richard Selcer, in particular, may often be seen in my criminal records section looking up old cases for his writings which span a time period when my own older relatives lived in Fort Worth and who used to tell me stories about the real history of Tarrant County when I was a boy. I didn't always believe them at the time. If you are a fan of the rich local history we have or just want to know more about the rough and tumble times of the late 19th and early 20th century, read this book!"--Thomas A. Wilder, Tarrant County District Clerk --Book Jacket.
