The Texas Rangers are celebrating their bicentennial this year. You may be thinking how that is possible since Texas wasn't even declared a republic until 1836 and didn't become the 28th state until 1845. Dr. Jody Edward Ginn, author, historian, and the Director of Development for the Texas Rangers Hall of Fame & Museum, talks all things Texas Rangers - the highs, the lows, and the misunderstood.
Jody Edward Ginn is Director of Development for the Texas Rangers Hall of Fame & Museum. He’s the former Executive Director of the Texas Rangers Heritage Center in Fredericksburg, Texas. He is a former law enforcement investigator/administrator and U.S. Army veteran with two decades of experience as a Public Historian. He’s the author of East Texas Troubles. He was also a history consultant on the Netflix Original film The Highwaymen with Kevin Costner and Woody Harrelson about the Bonne and Clyde saga. And lastly and probably most importantly, he made a special guest appearance on our two-part Eisenhower/Nimitz road trip documentary that came out last year.
