Abstract:

This book was written to honor those who helped spoil the Northfield Minnesota bank robbery by the James, Younger gang. Joseph Heywood the man who refused to open the vault, was the hero of the day, but it cost him his life. On September 7th, 1876, The James-Younger gang attempted to rob the Northfield bank. There were 8 members of the gang, consisting of Frank and Jesse James, Cole, Bob, and James Younger, Charles Pitts, Clel Miller, and William Stiles. Three members entered the bank, while two waited outside. The other three were reserves. Once the bullets began to fly, the five members outside rode up and down the street shooting in an attempt to keep the citizens inside. The citizens armed themselves and fought back. Miller and Stiles were left dead on the street, while the others rode off. One week later, the gang split-up, and Frank and Jesse crossed the Minnesota line into South Dakota and escaped. On the 21st, two weeks after the robbery, the Youngers and Charley Pitts, were found and in the shoot-out, Cole received 11 wounds, James 5 wounds, and Bob was shot in the chest. Pitts was killed. The Youngers recovered and pled guilty to avoid the death sentence. They refused to name the Jameses as the two who escaped. Bob died in prison in 1889, and as of the publication date of this book (1895) Cole and James had yet to be paroled.
