A Jesse James Video For Western Wednesday..

In the story of the bad boys of the old west, the James boys and the Younger brothers probably stand out more than most.

Jesse James Leads James-Younger Gang

In this clip of The Real West, host Kenny Rogers highlights the life of the notorious James Gang. The James Gang is probably most well recognized by its lead man, Jesse James. The gang had a history of robbing banks but wanted to try something new. The James brothers attempted to rob a train, by removing it from its tracks. Find out if they succeeded and how the well-known Jesse James was finally killed by watching this clip.

I'm surprised that any of these guys lived very long at all, considering what a dangerous trade they had chosen. If y6ou made it past 30, that was an accomplishment. Thanks to the history channel for this story and video.

Coffee inside again today, because of (you guessed it) rain!

I remember seeing this on the TV show The Real West - hosted by Kenny Rogers. It was so interesting. You are right , it is amazing that anyone of them lived past 30.

I also had seen this on TV it really was good. But to shoot him in the back of the head was so cowardly and why wasn't Ford hung for his part in all those robberies?

Camping trip canceled because of high heat here. So I will be here to join in the coffee get together's for now but what better way to spend these next few hot days

Hey Jo...
It was a very cowardly thing to do, without a doubt. As far as all the robberies...I have no idea.
Why not get a small wading pool that you and Fred can enjoy together? Might be fun!
Thanks, sweetie, for dropping in today!
