Thread 1 – What do you think is the difference between ‘Art’ and ‘Fine Art’? Is there a difference at all? You can discuss this in your own words – don’t look up anything else on the internet.
Reeves was arrested for being falsely accused of killing a cook, one of the members of his own posse in 1887. He stood trial before Judge Isaac Parker, the same man responsible for launching his career over a decade prior. Reeves was represented by his friend, U.S. Attorney W.H.H. Clayton and was ultimately acquitted. Probably the lowest point in his life was when his wife of 30 years passed way in 1896. Even though he remarried in 1900 to Winnie Sumter, Nellie was his first love and the mother of his children. Oklahoma gained statehood in 1907 and Reeves was no longer able to remain a deputy marshal. It was not because he wasn’t physically able to do the job, but it was due to new state laws that wouldn’t allow African-Americans to hold that position. At this point Reeves became a police officer in Muskogee, Oklahoma. Although it isn’t official, it was considered that during this time period there were no crimes committed on his patrol. Two years later, Reeves was diagnosed with Bright’s disease, which is a chronic inflammation of the kidneys. This ended his law enforcement career and later his life on January 12th, 1910.17 Due to his closeness with several Native American tribes and his ability to exist among them so easily, and the fact that he often rode alone say for an Indian escort, there has been conjecture that Bass Reeves may have been the basis for the Lone Ranger. Many people have considered that there are many key similarities among the exciting fictional character and the real-life legend. One essential element to this theory is many of Reeves’ prisoners were incarcerated at the Detroit House of Corrections. This was the city where, in 1933 the world heard the first radio broadcast of the Lone Ranger.18 Both of these heroes demonstrated the same moral compass, and similar skill sets. Encyclopedia Britannica claims, “While there is no definitive proof of the connection, Reeves is sometimes speculated to have been the inspiration for the fictional character the Lone Ranger.”19 Whether or not Bass Reeves really was the inspiration for such an iconic character, he himself was truly a legendary hero in his own right.>GET ANSWER
