Description

"Late Outlaw Raids On Texas' Nueces Strip: The Mexican Raid Of 1875 On Corpus Christi, Texas And The Mexican & Indian Raid Of 1878 On Corpus Christi, Texas" by Leopold Morris & Joseph Fitzsimmons are rare looks at the hardships and dangers of frontier life in Texas even late into the 19th Century.

Leopold Morris was a Texas local historian who wrote local historical works regarding south Texas. He is the author of the first short book included in this e-book, "The Mexican Raid Of 1875 On Corpus Christi, Texas," which gives a historical chronology of this 1875 raid. He used the statements of those with personal knowledge of the raid to ascertain the truth of the events from an eyewitness perspective. In this raid other evidence supports the charge that Juan Cortina, Mexican outlaw and later Mexican general, was an instigator, if not actually involved in the raid. This fact tends to support the widespread belief in Texas at that time in the connivence of, or at least the turning of, an official "blind eye" by the Mexican authorities in at least some of the incursions

The second book is a reprint of the very rare pamphlet, The Mexican and Indian Raid of 1878 on Corpus Christi, Texas." The compiler/editor of the pamphlet was Joseph Fitzsimmons. He was the chairman of the citizen's committee formed to petition the U. S. Government to redress the damages the raid caused and to provide better protection for rural south Texas ranches and towns. to this end the pamphlet reports the incidents of the raid and contains the sworn affidavits of eyewitnesses to the violence; reporting the names of those killed and wounded, and the property damaged.

Both of the narrative titles in this short e-book provide a graphic picture of the potential violence of life on the South Texas frontier even as late as 1880. They are illustrative of the hardships that the hardy souls who settled Texas faced in their struggle to make a good life for themselves and their children.

This is a short e-book of approximately 22,450+ words and approximately 74+ pages at 300 words per page.
