Bill Boren’s Revenge

Confederate Soldier Bill Boren's cousin Bob Lee

Bill Boren believed in revenge.  No matter who the target was.

The former Confederate soldier was a fighter in Texas’ Lee-Peacock Feud at the end of the War.  He rode with his cousin Bob Lee (see photo), who led the ex-rebels in the bloody affray against Union supporters

Boren’s uncle Henry betrayed Lee, who was killed by federal troops in 1869.  Bill Boren then turned the tables and killed his own uncle, evening the score and pretty much ending the feud.

Bill went on to pal around with another well-known Texas gunman, John Wesley Hardin.
