CAMP RABB

CAMP RABB. Camp Rabb was at the crossing of the road from San Antonio to Eagle Pass and Elm Creek, in Bexar Territory, later northeastern Maverick County. It was established by James M. Norris on April 7, 1862, as a ranger station for the Frontier Regiment. Under commander Capt. Thomas Rabb, the camp guarded the road and the frontier until the consolidation of the regiment at Fort Belknap in March 1864.
