Formed in 1823 to defend Texas after the Mexican War of Independence, the Texas Rangers became the most iconic law enforcers in the Wild West. They were synonymous with violence. In fact, between 1858 and 1901 30 members suffered bloody deaths. The rangers did, however, kill and capture many high-profile outlaws – including bank robber Sam Bass.
