Jesse James

Took a time out to dig around in the archives of famous outlaws.. in the midst of working on my prison project. Stumbled on this photo and found it fascinating.... along with his story.

Jesse Woodson James (September 5, 1847 – April 3, 1882) was an American outlaw, gang leader, bank robber, train robber, and murderer from the state of Missouri.

The posting by Amy Elkins here is factually inaccurate. No proof exists that Jesse Woodson James faked his own death. The factual record substantiates that he died on April 3, 1882.

Noted. That was sourced from wikipedia but upon going back to read it, I see it was taken down there as well.
