The coastal area from just south of Corpus Christi to just north of Copano bay was the scene of several battles of the Texas Revolution -- Gonzales, San Patricio, and Goliad, as well as other skirmishes such as the battle of Agua Dulce Cree. A current newspaper writer identified everything west of the Colorado River as "the raw frontier". After the flush of victory at San Jacinto, soldiers returned to their cabins only to find houses burned, cattle gone, and loved ones missing. Deserted soldiers from the Mexican army banded together and the area south of the Nueces Rvier became a haven for these gangs. Equally villainous were "gringo" gangs who pillaged deserted cabins, stole horses and rounded up loose cattle. Vigilante groups were formed to help bring law and order to this raw frontier. 162 pages, indexed.
