    Johnny Ringo - (Mason County, TX)
    His ending up in Arizona and in the history books as part of the Wyatt Earp legend was directly related to the old saying - "You can't outrun your past." In what would become known as the "Hoodoo War", Ringo aligned himself with the Cooley faction and began a string of reckless (and often erroneous) vengeance killings... Two years after things had somewhat cooled off, he was still getting death threats and fled to Arizona... And everyone knows the rest of the story... Except who actually killed him.


    Theodore Roosevelt - (San Antonio, TX)
    A really cool photo of Roosevelt at a Rough Riders Reunion in front of the Spanish Mission Nuestra Señora de la Purísima Concepción de Acuña (Mission Concepción) in San Antonio. Roosevelt mustered in his volunteers in the Menger Hotel (which sits directly adjacent to the Alamo) and they spent May 1898 drilling in the area before heading to Cuba.

    RANDOM PICTURE THREAD - Post ANY of your favorite pictures here to share with...

    Jefferson Davis Hospital - (Houston, TX)

    The hospital was built in the 1920's on the former grounds of a municipal cemetery that was active from the 1850s-90s, and was estimated to have had over 5000 graves.
    During the Civil War, the site also contained a CSA field hospital. One of my ancestors, who fought with the 7th Texas Mounted Volunteers in New Mexico, and then later at the Second Battle of Galveston - was shot while capturing the federal revenue cutter-turned gunship 'Harriet Lane' (yes, you read that correctly... they utilized cavalry troopers to act as marines and seize a gunship at shallow anchor!) They evacuated the wounded to the makeshift field hospital in Houston where many, including my ancestor, would later die. As was customary, they promptly buried them on-site in hastily marked and sometimes mass graves.
    By the 1890s, the cemetery had practically disappeared due to neglect and the like.
    In the 1920's they decided to build the Jefferson Davis Hospital on the site with only 2 stipulations... The city had to relocate as many graves as possible, and the hospital must have an above-ground basement so as not to disturb any burials they missed. Very few military burials were noted as being discovered/relocated during the construction that followed.

    Jump ahead to 1986... There has been a total of 30 sets of remains discovered in the 60 years since the hospitals construction. As they were found, they were stored locally at the University of Houston while arrangements were being introduced/planned/etc.

    Just across from the Jefferson Davis Hospital there was/is an AMTRAK station and a Fire Department. One day, while the city was working on some water lines behind the FD's equipment shed, a burial trench containing the remains of an additional 32 confederate soldiers was discovered. They end up fencing in the tiny little grass lot and dedicating a marker over the remains... Finally, in 2006 the additional 30 sets of remains being stored at the university are interred with them, and the marker is centered over both burials... Still stating "32" and not the proper total of 62.

    Ive been working on this for a few years now, and I'm making progress... I find it enjoyable to do the research and put feet to pavement. While i was on active duty the S1 shop would see me coming and ask if i was there about MY personnel records or trying to get something expedited to DA concerning my ancestor.

    Ultimately I'd like to see a state-sanctioned TSHC monument erected, and the NPRC award 62 Civil War Campaign Ribbons.

    Anyways, thanks for reading my story, and hope the photos are worthy of posting in this thread!

    Almost forgot another great Texas-themed photo sequence... The 1896 "Crash at Crush".

    Pure destruction as a publicity stunt.
