John Salmon Ford (1815 – 1897), better known as "Rip" Ford, was a member of the Republic of Texas Congress and later of the State Senate, and mayor of Brownsville, Texas. A Texas Ranger and a Confederate colonel, Ford commanded the Confederate forces in the last engagement of the American Civil War, the Battle of Palmito Ranch on May 12-13,1865. It was a Confederate victory, but as it occurred more than a month after Robert E. Lee's surrender it had no effect on the outcome of the war.

Colt Walker Revolver

The Heavy Holy Grail of Colt Revolvers- The rare Colt Walker Model 1847 is a 6-shot, single-action revolver weighing in at 4-1/2 lb & measuring a 1-1/2' in length. It was the weighty brainchild of Samuel Colt & Samuel Walker. Walker met with Colt in the 1840s to propose improvements to the Colt Paterson revolver...the result was the Colt Walker. Fewer than 10% of the 1,100 are known to exist today. Due to their rarity, these guns are the Holy Grail of Colt revolver collecting. NRA Museums.
