The south Tx renegades

what renegades are

The renegades were outlaws from both sides of the Rio Grand who robbed and raided towns. The lawlessness increased because of the Cival war. These renegades caused lots of fear to Mexicans and Texans.

The events that they took part in

The renegades made it difficult to decide who owned the cattle and who didnt. The Texan Rangers were sent in 1875 to try to make peace with the renegades. The leader of the rangers was Captain L.H. Mcneely. On the way the Rangers clashed with a man named Juan N. Cortina, he protected the rights of Mexicans. They never caught him . The border still had the renegades but the rangers were more focused on the Mexicans.
