Was the real Lone Ranger a former slave? African/African American Literature Join LibraryThing to post. 1quicksivaFeb 1, 12:58pm Was the real Lone Ranger Black? Ever hear of Bass Reeves? Read this review and decide. “It seems that the real life inspiration for the Masked Avenger of the Western Plains may have been an amazing giant of a man who really was the fastest-drawin', toughest, smartest lawman ever seen in the Indian Territory--and he had been born a slave. Bass Reeves was the name of this American hero, a name that has somehow been omitted from the pantheon of Wild West legends. But author Art T. Burton has sought to correct that oversight in the well-researched book, "Black Gun, Silver Star", published by the University of Nebraska Press. Reeves was a Deputy U.S. Marshall working out of Fort Smith, Arkansas in the years just after the Civil War, when the Indian Territory in what would later become Oklahoma was a no man's land of desperados, horse thieves, murderers, and outlaws. Reeves' career thus occupied the same time and space as that of the fictional Rooster Cogburn of True Grit fame. But Bass Reeves did in real life what John Wayne only play-acted at, and he did it in a way that combined elements of a number of fictional characters that would later loom large in our imaginations. Like the Lone Ranger, Bass Reeves would sometimes employ clever disguises as he sought the wanted men who haunted the Indian Territory. He learned from the Indians how to make himself look smaller in the saddle (he was 6'2" at a time when the average man was considerably smaller) and would adopt the clothing and mannerisms of the outlaws themselves to take them by surprise. According to Burton, Reeves also sometimes gave out silver dollars as calling cards (as opposed to the silver bullets of a certain masked man) and often rode a powerful white or grey horse. He was also often accompanied by an Indian posseman as he made his way through the dangerous wilderness that was this lawman's "beat". Burton also points out that many of those arrested by Reeves served their time in the Detroit federal penitentiary. And it was in Detroit that the Lone Ranger was first created, as a local radio show. So was Reeves at least partially an inspiration for the Lone Ranger? Burton suggests it might be so. [/quote]
As lived by the legendary lawman -
The moral code upheld by the masked man.
Print it off and keep it close. good words to live by...
The Lone Ranger's Creed:
The moral code upheld by the masked man
"I believe that to have a friend, a man must be one.
That all men are created equal and that everyone has within himself the power to make this a better world.
That God put the firewood there but that every man must gather and light it himself.
In being prepared physically, mentally, and morally to fight when necessary for that which is right.
That a man should make the most of what equipment he has.
That 'This government, of the people, by the people and for the people' shall live always.
That men should live by the rule of what is best for the greatest number.
That sooner or later ... somewhere ... somehow ... we must settle with the world and make payment for what we have taken.
That all things change but truth, and that truth alone, lives on forever.
In my Creator, my country, my fellow man."
