The dead were found in the rubble of the April 19 fire that destroyed the compound, killing more than 75 Branch Davidians, including the sect's leader, David Koresh, and 17 children. Perhaps the worst case of the federal government's overreaching in American history, the 1993 Waco tragedy has caused Americans to ask the question of how much military involvement will citizens allow in their everyday lives before they lose their rights as individuals. In February, 1993, 4 federal agents were killed in an assault on the compound of t ...

  • Old West By Larry Mcmurtry - 1,308 words
    Old West By Larry McMurtry "Old West" LONESOME DOVE While Larry McMurtry honors certain mythical features of the "Old West," his epic, Lonesome Dove, is the quintessential representation of the realism of the "Old West."

Larry McMurtry's Lonesome Dove presents characters not larger than life but complex, women who are not frightened and dependent, but self ...

In one tragic scene, Deets a likeable, former Texas Ranger who happens to be black, is killed by a young Indian who is ignorant that Deets is trying to rescue a small, blind Indian boy. Deets once pursued Indians under the command of Woodrow Call and Augustus McC ...
