Mackenzie’s Raiders COMPLETE S01
From the archives of the United States Cavalry, the true story of Colonel Ranald Mackenzie and the Cavalrymen he led, Mackenzie’s Raiders. Operating on secret orders from President Ulysses S. Grant and General Phil Sheridan, Mackenzie’s mission was clear-cut, clean up the Southwest…make it a fit place for Americans to live…wipe out the renegades, outlaws and murderers. If necessary, cross the Rio Grande, knowing capture means hanging by the enemy…discovery, court martial by the United States Army.
For American Cavalry to make unauthorized raids into Mexico meant risking international incident, but the battle-wise Mackenzie routinely galloped across the border to inflict punishment on marauding bandidos, gun runners and renegade Apaches who raided on American soil then crossed the Rio Grande into Mexico seeking safety. But, if he or his troops were caught, our government would disown him. Mackenzie’s forays into Mexico soon made the outlaws think twice about raiding in Texas.
