The Texas Ranger: The Mexican Bandits

The Texas ranger roamed the borders of Texas.One time he was riding through El Paso and came across some Mexican bandits.The bandits started shooting at him from the hill. He couldn't see them so he tied up his horse on a rock behind a tree, took out his rifle and started firing at them. He moved closer and closer, bullet shells of his 30-30 flew  around him.As time went by, only 4 men where left. BOOM!! The Texas Ranger shot one right in the chest. Off in the distance comes Johnny, a rancher, a couple miles away who knew the Texas ranger. He came up on the side of another hill tied up his horse took out his 45 and from behind, shot one in the back of his head. Two left, and Johnny shot the next one on the shoulder. He marched up the hill, told him to put the gun down & called the Texas ranger up. Johnny took  the bandits gun and let him free. Johnny & the Texas Ranger made it home safely with minor injuries. The Texas Ranger was shot in the shoulder, and Johnny twisted his ankle.

the flag

On January 1, 1776, the Continental Army was reorganized in accordance with a Congressional resolution which placed American forces under George Washington's control. On that New Year's Day the Continental Army was laying siege to Boston which had been taken over by the British Army. Washington ordered the Grand Union flag hoisted above his base at Prospect Hill. It had 13 alternate red and white stripes and the British Union Jack in the upper left-hand corner (the canton).
In May of 1776, Betsy Ross reported that she sewed the first American flag.

On June 14, 1777, in order to establish an official flag for the new nation, the Continental Congress passed the first Flag Act: "Resolved, That the flag of the United States be made of thirteen stripes, alternate red and white; that the union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field, representing a new Constellation."

Between 1777 and 1960, Congress passed several acts that changed the shape, design and arrangement of the flag and allowed for additional stars and stripes to be added to reflect the admission of each new state

"The colors of the pales (the vertical stripes) are those used in the flag of the United States of America; White signifies purity and innocence, Red, hardiness & valour, and Blue, the color of the Chief (the broad band above the stripes) signifies vigilance, perseverance & justice."
