No Man’s Land and the rise of the mobs

Editor’s Note: Part -3- in a continuing series.

To understand the beginnings of mob rule one must first examine the early development of present day Mills County. The county was organized in 1887, but before then it was considered “a no man’s land.” This area was composed of the extreme fringes of present day Brown, Comanche, Hamilton, and Lampasas Counties. It was the hunting grounds of the Apache and Comanche Indians who fought for the possession of the prairie until late as 1850. The first white settlers moved into a free unfenced land with no law enforcement.

VIGILANTISM, A BRIEF HISTORY

Editor’s Note: Part -2- in a continued series.

Vigilantism has always existed throughout western civilization. It was often a result of unbearable social conditions, official oppression or an abusing power. Examples in the old world were the Moss Troopers during the English Civil War, the Free Companions, who fought the misrule of King Louis XI of France and the Carbonari of Italy, who assumed importance during the Napoleonic wars. Most were some sort of secret society bound by mystic oaths and cloaked in mystery. However, it was no secret that those organizations existed and were a force to be reckoned with. From generation to generation stories of legend, myth, and folklore were handed down, eventually finding their way to the new world of America.1
