"Jesse James, one of the most famous outlaws of the American
West, acquired a Robin Hood reputation among the people of the area. At
the age of 15, during the Civil War, he joined a band of pro-Confederate
guerrillas led by William C. Quantrill. After the war, Jesse James formed
a gang with his brother, Frank, and several other men. They held up banks,
stagecoaches, and trains until 1876, when the gang was decimated trying
to rob a Northfield, Minnesota. The two brothers escaped and formed a new
gang. On April 3, 1882, Jesse was shot and killed by a fellow gang member
for a reward. Frank later surrendered; he was tried and acquitted twice."
