Bass Reeves (The Genuine Long Ranger) Original

Price:

Size: 11" X 14"

Reeves is held by many to be the real Lone Ranger. Reeves worked for 32 years as a federal peace officer in the Indian Territory, and he spoke four Native American languages. He became one of Judge Issac Parker's most valued deputies. Reeves brought in some of the most dangerous criminals of the time, but was never wounded, despite having his hat and belt shot off on separate occasions.

 

In addition to being a marksman with a rifle and pistol, Reeves developed superior detective skills during his long career. As the first black U.S. Marshal, he offered a silver dollar for anyone that gave him information on the fugitives he was chasing. During his 32 year tenure as marshal, he captured more outlaws than anyone else of his time. When he retired in 1907, Reeves claimed to have arrested over 3,000 felons. He is said to have shot and killed 14 outlaws to defend his own life.

Reeves and his family farmed until 1875, when Isaac Reeves was the first black deputy to serve west of the Mississippi River. Reeves was assigned as a deputy U.S. marshal for the Western District of Arkansas, which had responsibility also for the Indian Territory. He served there until 1893.

Once, he had to arrest his own son for murder. One of his sons, Bennie Reeves, was charged with the murder of his wife. Deputy Marshal Reeves was disturbed and shaken by the incident, but allegedly demanded the responsibility of bringing Bennie to justice. Bennie was eventually tracked and captured, tried, and convicted. He served his time in Fort Leavenworth in Kansas before being released, and reportedly lived the rest of his life as a responsible and model citizen.

When Oklahoma became a state in 1907, Bass Reeves, then 68, became an officer of the Muskogee Police Department. He served for two years before he became ill and retired.
