When people talk about legendary lawmen of the old west there are a few names that most likely will be discussed. The majority of people are aware of the Earp brothers, the most famous being Wyatt. Pat Garett and Bat Masterson are a couple other names that are synonymous with the old west. There is one man, however, that few people are aware of that deserves as much recognition as all the other lawmen. Bass Reeves was born a slave, but became a legend. Growing Up Bass Bass Reeves was born in Crawford, county, Arkansas sometime in the year 1838. The boy was raised as a slave in Grayson, county, Texas with his owner, William S. Reeves, who was a farmer and politician. Bass took the surname, Reeves, from his master as it was customary for slaves during that time period. As a slave, Reeves worked as a water boy, quenching the thirst of the other slaves. When he was old enough he ended up working as a field hand. As a young adult Bass Reeves became a personal valet, companion and bodyguard for George Reeves, William’s son. He would work in this capacity until the Civil War broke out. At this point George would go to fight for the confederacy, and he took Bass with him.1 Very little is known about what exactly Reeves did during the Civil War. One theory is that he served under Colonel George Reeves’ command in several battles, to include; Pea Ridge and Missionary Ridge. Others claim that he had escaped slavery during that time. One popular notion is that Bass and George got into a struggle over a card game, and he used that opportunity to flee to Indian territory. Being a mountain of a man, standing at 6’2, this idea seemed highly plausible. Reeves took refuge with numerous tribes, to include the Cherokee. While living with the indigenous people he developed a great understanding of their customs, language, and mastered their tracking skills. Reeves also used this opportunity to enhance his firearm talents. He became very deadly accurate and swift with his revolver. The Indians trusted Reeves more than the white lawmen in the territory because of his skin color. They felt more of a kinship with him. When Reeves learned that he was a free man, due to the Emancipation Proclamation, he bought some land in Arkansas and became a successful farmer and rancher. It was here that he met and married Nellie Jennie with whom he fathered ten children.2 The Legend Begins It was during this point in Reeves’ life that it really became interesting. While working as a rancher he was hired on several occasions as a guide and scout for the U.S. Marshals to execute warrants in the Indian territories. In May of 1875 the Federal Western District Court was supervised by Judge Isaac Parker.3 As his first official act, he appointed U.S. Marshal James F. Fagan to head up 200 deputies to patrol the territory. The Oklahoma Range covered over 75,000 square miles.4 Because of his extensive knowledge of the area and its people, and his ability to speak several tribal languages, Reeves was hired as a permanent U.S. Deputy during this period.5 Thad Morgan explains that, “Upon taking the job, he became the first black deputy U.S. marshal west of the Mississippi.”6 Reeves was illiterate but it did not hinder his performance. He would have someone read the warrants to him and he’d have them memorized before they rode out. When he issued a warrant for an arrest, he would produce the correct one each time.7>GET ANSWER
