“ Unfortunately, there has been little written about these unselfish volunteers who faced the danger of the frontier to safeguard the settlers during the time of crisis. (Texas State Library) Texas finally did recognize the Home Guard Units for their service to the state and awarded them pension.

BUT IT WAS FAR TOO LATE


Folks, here is the story of the Texas Home Guard Militia.

A SELDOM FOUND STORY!!

Indexed for the first time below. There were many a western story published – the common ones about Cowboys and Indians are listed on Ebay every day but the rarer ones about the Texas Home Guard Militia are seldom found. Collectors treasure them and their price guide value rises every day. They are hard to find. I hunt them out because really the better, untold and rarer stories were published in the rest.

Here’s one of ‘em.

Following my retirement, I have dedicated my remaining hours to indexing the Genealogy of our western heroes. During my research, I discovered that thousands of our kinfolk lay unfound and unrecognized on some book dealer’s shelf gathering dust. Because Old Western History and Memorabilia was printed before computer indexing, I index every item I sell.

This complete index will be bound and included in this offering at no additional cost.

Humbly, I am trying to keep our history alive.

I hope you appreciate the effort.

TEXAS’ VOLUNTEER MILITIA

by Russel P. McDonald

TEXAS HOME GUARD MEMORABILIA

IS RAPIDLY DISAPPEARING

While others clip ads from magazines, I save history. It’s a shame that our past is being lost. It’s as simple as that.

My wife kids me that after I find a piece I like, buy it, read it, research it, take a picture, scan it, write the blurb, pay the Ebay entry fee and commission, that I end up making about 50 cents an hour. But, OH HOW I LOVE THIS OLD WESTERN HISTORY. What a story, Rare Story!!! Great Pictures. You will love it as it was published in this old complete and seldom found western magazine of many years ago. The issue is very hard to find and a collectible issue in excellent condition, the cover is pristine and in vibrant color.

As clearly stated in my description, this is featured story in a rarely found and seldom read unusual and complete western magazine. I don't give out name of publication or date because I have caught competitors copying my index and work and trying to sell it as theirs. I hope you understand.

Buyer pays postage of $3.50 First Class Postage to U. S., $4.50 to Canada. $5.00 Priority Mail. $12.30 Par Avion (Air Mail) for International Mail. Texans must pay 8-¼ % sales tax. Thanks,

Tom
