Did you see the recent episode of Timeless? I'm so hooked on this show-time travel and history! Does it get any better? This show featured, among others, Bass Reeves. He was one of the first black Deputy U.S. Marshals to serve in the west. He was known to be very good at his job. Many think he was the inspiration for the Lone Ranger. I had done a webquest about Bass and was really excited to see his appearance.
