MACKENZIE’S RAIDERS starring Richard Carlson



Mackenzie's Raiders is an American Western television series starring Richard Carlson that aired in syndication from 1958 until 1959. The series was narrated by Art Gilmore.


Carlson played Colonel Colonel Ranald S. Mackenzie, commander of the 4th Cavalry Regiment at Fort Clark near Brackettville, during the 1870s. The real Mackenzie was a nephew of Confederate States of America diplomat John Slidell and the brother of Union Army Lieutenant Commander Alexander Slidell MacKenzie.

In the series story line, Colonel Mackenzie receives secret orders from U.S. President Ulysses S. Grant and General Phil Sheridan to stop Mexican bandits from crossing the Rio Grande into the United States or from returning to Mexico. The show continued as Mackenzie and his raiders ride deep into Mexican territory, but the Raiders also fought gunfighters and renegade Indians. The series lasted for a single season.

This exciting 19 episode set preserves another of those early action series from the early days of television.  Lots of action and the quality ranges from 7.5 to 8 which is quite good for a show that has not been seen in over 30 years.
