Survivor of historic USS Indianapolis honored at Anniversary Reunion

Story by Mandy Lebow Edmondson

In July 1945, the USS Indianapolis, described by her sailors as one of the most beautiful battleships ever built, embarked on a mission so secret that even her crew members were unaware of what cargo they carried. So secret, the captain was refused an escort--even though they had to journey through enemy territory.

On July 26, the crew completed their secret mission delivery to the Pacific island of Tinian (little did they know that less than two weeks later, the atomic bomb they delivered would be dropped on the city of Hiroshima), and they set out for the Leyte Gulf in the Philippines to join the USS Idaho for an invasion of Japan.

The Texas Rangers and The San Saba Mob

Submitted by Ross J. Cox, Sr

Editor’s Note: Part - 5 - in a continuing series.

It is important to remember this vigilante committee was organized of wealthy men who stood the most to lose financially. Although there are no records, it was assumed that these “men of justice” were educated and had some type of ritualistic background. The committee was organized similarly to a lodge.
