Texas history records some fantastic stories about the Rangers. For instance in 1907, James Dunaway was sent to Groverton to stop a riot... one Ranger, mind you. In the fight that ensued, he was shot 19 times. Nevertheless, he sent a wire to the governor which read, "Riot stopped. Shot to pieces. Nothing serious."
