Jesse James was born on this day in 1882 in Missouri.    

Jesse and his brother robbed banks and trains.     They stole over $ 200,000!

They also killed a lot of innocent people.  

I saw in a documentary that he never accepted the South’s defeat in The Civil War.   He robbed banks and trains because he saw them as part of the North destroying Southern culture.

Jesse was killed in 1882.   He became a folk hero after his death.   They wrote books and even made movies about him, such as this one from 1939 with Tyrone Power:
