The Texas Rangers: Wearing the Cinco Peso, 1821-1900


The Texas Rangers: Wearing the Cinco Peso, 1821-1900



Austin Statesman journalist Michael Cox explores the origin and rise of the famed Texas Rangers. Starting in 1821 with just a handful of men, the Rangers' first purpose was to keep settlers safe from the feared and gruesome Karankawa Indians, a cannibalistic tribe that wanderd the Texas territory. As the influx of settlers grew, the attacks increased, and it became clear that a larger, better trained force was necessary.

Taking readers through the major social and political movements of the Texas territory and into its statehood, Cox shows how the Rangers were a defining force in the stabilization and the creation of Texas. From Stephen Austin in the early days through the Civil War, the first eighty years of the Texas Rangers were nothing less than phenomenal, and the efforts put forth in those days set the foundation for the Texas Rangers who keep Texas safe today.

A Simple Stack of Stone




A Simple Stack of Stone





We walked out of the market onto Calle Juarez with the vague plan of visiting Monte Alban that afternoon. Standing in the shade, lazily mulling our transportation options, a colectiva bumps to a stop and discharges a few passengers. Its destination--in neon green, hand placed block letters--MONTE ALBAN. We hop on.

Siete pesos cada persona.

I clumsily pull a fist of miscellaneous coins from my pocket and fumble through the strange gold and silver tokens while Betsy and Denise take a seat in the back. I lean my face toward my hand to decipher each coin's worth. ln a few seconds, I have stacked an appropriate sum of coins in a small pile on my fingers, away from the mess of coins littering my palm:
one ten, one five, two twos, one one, two 50 centavo pieces.
I'm not used to actually buying things with coins.

Having tested my mathematical prowess, I hand the coins to the driver as he shifts into second and passes a man on a overloaded bicycle cart. Without a glance at the coins, he stacks the pieces by value in a specially designed, wooden coinage rack.

I take my seat in the back just as the bus comes to a turn too tight to manage. A few idling cars pull onto the sidewalk to make room. A passenger jumps out to guide the colectiva through the narrow aperture. Banging against the aluminum rear side panel, he communicates all is clear, keep moving. Meanwhile, a small delivery truck lurches forward in small spurts, unwilling to move completely, only what is necessary. The bus is clear and we are soon underway again. The helpful percussionist passenger jumps aboard through the back exit as the bus motors along.

After a few minutes driving in Mexico, a word will enter your Spanish vocabulary.

Tope: a hindrance to speeding created by a crosswise ridge in the surface of a roadway.

Speedbumps are ubiquitous and are cause for some excitement in the back of a plastic seated colectiva. Particularly a colectiva that just lost five minutes maneuvering a turn. Even though there is no printed schedule for public transportation in Mexico, the bus operators take great pride (and risks) in ensuring passengers arrive at their destination expeditiously.

Outside of town, as we climb the mountain towards Monte Alban, the topes become sparser and the road becomes windier. In other words, instead of up and down, butt off the seat motions, the passengers are now sliding left and right and holding on to the seats in front of them as to not get dumped in the aisle (or out the open rear door). The Mexicans, tired from a day at the market or working are used to the roller coaster. Us gringos are laughing and having fun and getting sick. We take one final 180 degree left hand hair pin turn accelerating an on just two wheels over a speed bump into a dusty turnaround and comes to a stop. When the dust clears, it becomes evident this is is the end of the line. Where are the ruins?

Vuelta de la esquina y sube la colina -- Around the corner and up the hill. I register a suspicious smile on the operator's face.

We start walking. Its hot. Hotter than in town. We reach the corner and confront what they referred to as la colina. It's probably a two mile job around a valley and around the backside of a ridge. And just that's what we can see. We hail a passing cab to ferry us the rest of the way. And soon we are climbing stones placed by Zapotecs two thousand years ago.
