Mackenzie's Raiders - The Late-'50s TV Series is Coming to DVD from Timeless Media Group


5-disc set will be available starting from early October

    From the archives of the United States Cavalry comes the true story of Colonel Ranald Mackenzie and the Cavalrymen he led, Mackenzie's Raiders. Operating on secret orders from President Ulysses S. Grant and General Phil Sheridan, Mackenzie's mission was clear-cut: clean up the Southwest...make it a fit place for Americans to live...wipe out the renegades, outlaws and murderers. If necessary, cross the Rio Grande, knowing capture means hanging by the enemy...discovery, court martial by the United States Army.

    For American Cavalry to make unauthorized raids into Mexico meant risking international incident, but the battle-wise Mackenzie routinely galloped across the border to inflict punishment on marauding bandidos, gun runners and renegade Apaches who raided on American soil then crossed the Rio Grande into Mexico seeking safety. But, if he or his troops were caught, our government would disown him. Mackenzie's forays into Mexico soon made the outlaws think twice about raiding in Texas.
Timeless Media Group is preparing an October 8th DVD release for Mackenzie's Raiders - The TV Series. This syndicated black-and-white show ran for a single season of 39 episodes back in 1958-59, and included guest stars such as Leonard Nimoy, DeForest Kelley, Doug McClure, John Milford, and Jack Elam, among others. TMG's 5-disc set will cost $29.93 SRP, but you can pre-order it from Amazon at a discount. We're still waiting on package art, so stay tuned!
