Esquire: Taylor Sheridan Has Become Our Generation’s Greatest Western Storyteller

Greeley Hat Works started making hats for Taylor Sheridan when he was a young cowboy, before he ever rose to Hollywood fame. It’s an honor to continue to make hats for he and his family, and for his movies and tv shows including Wind River and Yellowstone.

We were lucky enough to be featured in this Esquire article, as Taylor wears his #HATisfaction® almost every day.

We’ve also had the pleasure of making hats for his wife, Nicole Sheridan.

    PLEASE FORWARD TO TAYLOR SHERIDAN
    🐴 JAMES PLUMMER HERE—A PARKER COUNTY, TEXAS, GUY!
    I KNOW THERE IS A MOVIE ABOUT MORE THAN JUST THE May 19, 1836 MASSACRE AT FORT PARKER—-THERE ARE SO MANY, MANY SIDE STORIES WITH THIS EVENT & DECADES AFTER THE EVENT
    •••The video vignette below not entirely accurate. Rachel Plummer was actually inside the Fort trying to protect her son when both were overtaken by Comanches. Her husband, ie, Luther Plummer & our family patriarch & his Father-in-Law James Parker father were tending to the corn field about a mile from the fort when the massacre ensued.

    Like the short video visual seems to be portraying, it was said Rachel Parker Plummer actually did walk from Texas all the way to the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in southern Colorado. Most might agree it was pretty rough & tough times back in this era of Texas & U.S. history.

    Concerning the compilation of a comprehensive movie script outline, I guess I need to quit talking about it & just get to doin’. Since my UNT student days I wanted to spend some more research time at UNT’s Willis Library & then here at Weatherford’s Public library to put together a movie script outline of the entire Fort Parker story with more side stories & themes than you can shake a stick at.

    The outline would probably begin in the late 1820’s with this pioneer clan who lived in Springfield, Illinois—I often wondered if any of them had any dealings with Abe Lincoln? Issac Parker of whom Parker County, Texas, is named was the politician of the clan & I’d wager he ran across a young Honest Abe in the 1820’s; you know “birds of the feather…?”
    •••then the migration to Texas with these pioneers who were going to create the first Baptist congregation in Texas (albeit our family patriarch Luther Thomas Martin Plummer was a Methodist )•••then the day of the massacre, ie, what everyone was doing prior to Benjamin Parker going outside the fort gates to parley (mostly buy time) & his offer of several beeves to the leaders of about 400-500 Comanche & Kiowas who quietly rode their horses out of the woods onto a clearing just outside the gates of Fort Parker—looking much like it does today at the restored western-style Indian fort located between the Texas towns of Mexia & Groesbeck.
    •••then the various personalities inside the Fort (but specifically, Cynthia Ann, Rachel & her father—the rogue, quite dishonest Rev. James Parker that Sam Houston wouldn’t write the kindest of words in a letter to our family patriarch one Luther Plummer—a letter which is published in its entirety in Frank X. Tolbert’s book “An Informal History of Texas”•••then the carnage that took place inside the Fort during the massacre with the 2 first cousins Cynthia Ann & Rachel both being captured (among several others including Rachel’s son James) & their time being held captive with the Comanche.
    •••Continue with both cousins lives as captives that New York Times best-seller “The Killing of Crazy Horse” author Bill O’Reilly called the most savage & cruelest of all Indian tribes on America soil in a recent radio interview about his latest “Killing of…series” book•••then move onto Warrior & Comanche Chief Peta Nocona—who would father all of Cynthia Ann’s kids including Quanah.
    ••• then a segment on Texas Ranger Captain Sul Ross & his troop’s rescue of Cynthia Ann at the battle of the Pease River near present day Crowell, Texas—about 1 hour from Weatherford.
    •••finally, Quanah Parker as a savage warrior chief (Battle of Adobe Walls) & then he becoming civilized & helping his tribe adapt to White society•••conclude with Quanah Parker’s close friendship with President Theodore Roosevelt; including he, Geronimo & 4 other famous chiefs ride on horseback down Pennsylvania Avenue in Teddy Roosevelt’s Inauguration Parade & many, many other side stories. (🎥Then…fade to black).
