They say everything is bigger in Texas, and the Lone Star State can certainly boast of immense ranches, vast oil fields, enormous cowboy hats, and larger-than-life heroes. Among the greatest of the latter are the iconic Texas Rangers, a service that has existed, in one form or another, since 1823. Established in Waco in 1968, the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum continues to honor these legendary symbols of Texas and the American West. While upholding a proud heritage of duty and sacrifice, even men who wear the cinco peso badge can have their own champions. Thirty-one individuals—whose lives span more than two centuries—have been enshrined in the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame. In The Ranger Ideal Volume 2: Texas Rangers in the Hall of Fame, 1874-1930, Darren L. Ivey presents capsule biographies of the twelve inductees who served Texas in the latter half of the nineteenth century. Ivey begins with John B. Jones, who directed his Rangers through their development from state troops to professional lawmen; then covers Leander H. McNelly, John B. Armstrong, James B. Gillett, Jesse Lee Hall, George W. Baylor, Bryan Marsh, and Ira Aten—the men who were responsible for some of the Rangers’ most legendary feats. Ivey concludes with James A. Brooks, William J. McDonald, John R. Hughes, and John H. Rogers, the “Four Great Captains” who guided the Texas Rangers into the twentieth century.

This innovative study presents a new, integrated view of the Civil War and Reconstruction and the history of the western United States. Award-winning historians such as Steven Hahn, Martha Sandweiss, William Deverell, Virginia Scharff, and Stephen Kantrowitz offer original essays on lives, choices, and legacies in the American West, discussing the consequences for American Indian nations, the link between Reconstruction and suffrage movements, and cross-border interactions with Canada and Mexico. In the West, Civil War battlefields and Civil War politics engaged a wide range of ethnic and racial distinctions, raising questions that would arise only later in places farther east. Histories of Reconstruction in the South ignore the connections to previous occupation efforts and citizenship debates in the West. The stories contained in this volume complicate our understanding of the paths from slavery to freedom for white as well as non-white Americans. By placing the histories of the American West and the Civil War and Reconstruction period within one sustained conversation, this volume expands the limits of both by emphasizing how struggles over land, labor, sovereignty, and citizenship shaped the U.S. nation-state in this tumultuous era. This volume highlights significant moments and common concerns of this continuous conflict, as it stretched across the continent and throughout the nineteenth century. Publishing on the 150th anniversary of the end of the Civil War, this collection brings eminent historians into conversation, looking at the Civil War from several Western perspectives, and delivers a refreshingly disorienting view intended for scholars, general readers, and students. Published in Cooperation with the William P. Clements Center for Southwest Studies, Southern Methodist University.

Als im April 1861 der Amerikanische Bürgerkrieg ausbricht, ist der 21jährige Sam Watkins aus Maury County, Tennessee einer der tausenden von Kriegsfreiwilligen, die sich zu den Armeen der Südstaaten melden. Watkins schließt sich der „Co. Aytch" (so die lautmalerische Ausschreibung für „Kompanie H") des 1. Tennessee-Infanterieregiments an und folgt dem Regiment von den ersten kleinen Gefechten in Virginia bis zur vernichtenden Niederlage der konföderierten Tennessee-Armee in der Schlacht von Nashville. In seinen im Jahre 1881 entstandenen Kriegserinnerungen schildert Watkins mit scharfem Blick für das Erzählenswerte und feinem Sinn für Humor all jene furchtbaren und absurd-komischen Geschehnisse, die der Wahnsinn des Krieges für einen Soldaten der konföderierten Tennessee-Armee bereithielt. Dabei gewährt „Co. Aytch", das zu Recht als Standardwerk der Bürgerkriegsliteratur gilt, nicht nur einen wertvollen Einblick in die Erlebnisse und Gedanken des durchschnittlichen „Johnny Reb", sondern ist zugleich bewegendes Zeugnis eines Versuchs der literarischen Vergangenheitsbewältigung. Ein Anhang der erhaltenen, vom Regimentskommandeur verfassten Gefechtsberichte des 1. Tennessee-Regiments zu den Schlachten von Shiloh, Perryville, Murfreesboro und Chickamauga ermöglicht einen aufschlussreichen Vergleich zu den Schilderungen des unmittelbar beteiligten Soldaten.

Volume 11 contains the judgments finalized between the end of January and the end of May 1948. In eight instances the trial judgments could not be found in the archives or were only discovered in part. If these documents should nevertheless turn up before the completion of the series, they will be included in its final volume. The remaining 75 cases deal primarily with crimes committed by Germans against German civilians in "East Germany". Most of these cases concern denunciations, among them one involving General Lindemann, a conspirator of the July 1944 attempt on Hitler, along with five of the persons who helped to hide him from the Gestapo (case nr.1662). During these early months of 1948 the very first judgments of East German courts concerning the 'Euthanasia' crimes committed in the institutions Bernburg, Grafeneck, Hadamar and Uchtspringe appear (case nrs. 1616, 1629, 1664 and 1684). Three cases in this volume are particularly noteworthy: one deals with the systematic deprivation of civil rights of Jews and the constant pestering, chicaneries and denunciations (often leading to deportation) they had to endure from the "Jewish section" of a town's administration (case nr. 1624). The other two cases concern the coercive measures imposed upon the civil population within the context of defence measures during the final phase of the war: the forced employment of women and children on behalf of the defence of the "Festung Breslau" (nr. 1626) and the forced evacuation under catastrophic circumstances of the civiliation population of Görlitz by the mayor and the local Nazi ring leader, both of whom were sentenced to death.
