The show is a history of how the Texas rangers were formed. Santa Anna was going scorched earth through Texas and Sam Houston sent the message out. Texas had two choices, give up or fight. The deadly war was all or nothing in brutal conditions. The request for men who could handle difficult odds and not give up was answered in spades. The call to arms turned independent cowboys into rangers who had one mission, protect the territory. The story of the Texas rangers was just beginning; the first impression formed a lasting image that would shape history.
