Two great stories from the old west!
1) THE LEGEND OF THE LOST SUBLETT MINE They thought Old Ben Sublett was crazy when he rolled into the town of Odessa Texas and persisted in saying that one day he would come back from his weeks of prospecting in the Guadalupes with a wagon full of gold. Those mountains were full of Apaches and rattlesnakes- but not gold. They had no idea that Old Ben had been a Texas Ranger and won medals fighting for the Confederacy.- and when he said he could do something he was more than talk.
2) THE BLACK SEMINOLE SCOUTS OF TEXAS- Their people had been driven out of Florida to a barren wasteland in the Midwest, then cheated out of what they were promised. Mexico offered them land and freedom if they would just fight Apaches and Comanches who were raiding across the US border- so they migrated to Mexico. But politics changed, and Mexico didn't keep their promises either.. Finally, the US Army offered more promises- join us as Indian scouts and you'll get property, pay, and your families will be fed. After four them won the Medal of Honor for valor they still found themselves fighting for what they had been promised, but no one would ever question their bravery.
