About This Show
With hills studded with whiskey stills and cisterns brimming over with beer, Glen Rose operated in concerted defiance of one of Prohibition’s chief champions, Governor Pat Neff. In 1923, Neff dispatched Texas Rangers and undercover agents to do the job of the unwilling local law enforcement. More than fifty men were arrested, including the sheriff and the county prosecutor. Outraged, the town’s most prominent citizens stalked the Rangers and their agents, assassinating the primary operative, who happened to be a WWI veteran from Granbury, in an ambush and further escalating the affair. Author Martin Brown follows the frenzy of the raid and its aftermath.
