In 1875 Bass Reeves was the first black U.S. Deputy Marshal west of the Mississippi River and one of the greatest frontier heroes in our nation's history who brought in more than 3,000 outlaws and helped to tame the lawless territory. Killing some 14 men during his service, Reeves always said that he "never shot a man when it was not necessary for him to do so in the discharge of his duty to save his own life." See more
At the end Lucy discovers that she was accidentally caught in a photograph taken at the event. However, the camera technology of that day was so crude that people had to stand still for a couple of minutes while the photograph was being taken. She could not have been taken by surprise by the photographer, especially since she is shown looking at the camera, and would have known what was happening and had time to get out of the way.

So this U.S. Marshal's the guy that the Lone Ranger's based off of?
That's what they say. Bass Reeves was responsible for over 3,000 arrests in his career. Arguably the best lawman in the Old West.
If he's that good, why doesn't the town come to him for help?
