The Governor Hounds: The Texas State Police, 1870-1873

Speaker or PresenterJoin the Texas State Library and Archives Commission on Thursday, January 14th at 7:00 PM for an evening with author and historian Donaly E. Brice as he shares excerpts from his book, The Governor’s Hounds: The Texas State Police, 1870-1873. Drawing upon a wealth of previously untouched resources from the Texas State Archives, this book offers an engaging assessment of the much-reviled Texas State Police and its role in maintaining law and order in the years following the American Civil War. This program coincides with the current TSLAC lobby exhibit, Evolution of the Texas Rangers: 1836-1920, which invites visitors to explore the history of the men behind the silver star.
