Captain Bill McDonald (1852-1918) is the most prominent of the "Four Great Captains" of Texas Ranger history. In 1891 McDonald became captain of Company B of the Frontier Battalion of the Texas Rangers. He and his Rangers were involved with the Fitzsimmons-Maher prizefight in El Paso, the Wichita Falls bank robbery, the murders by the San Saba Mob, the Reese-Townsend feud at Columbus, and the Brownsville Raid of 1906, to name a few of the more notable events. McDonald's reputation as a gunman rested upon his easily demonstrated markmanship, a flair for using his weapons to intimidate opponents, and the publicity given his numerous exploits. His ability to handle mobs resulted in a classic tale told around campfires: one riot, one Ranger
