Detailed report on the Death of Jesse James... More detailed than most...



Item # 558557

April 13, 1882

RED WING ARGUS, Red Wing, Minnesota, April 13, 1882  Page 2 has an article headed: "End of a Notorious Outlaw" which begins: "Tremendous excitement was caused at St. Joseph, Mo., on the 3d inst., by the announcement that Jesse James, the notorious bandit & robber had been killed at his temporary residence in that city. The news spread with great rapidity..." with much more.
Details are provided as to how the incident happened (see photos for the full report), which include: "...He then picked up a duster, stepped up on a chair & commenced dusting a picture which hung on the wall, his back being turned to the Fords. Both Robert and Charles immediately drew their weapons, but the former was the quickest & sent a ball crashing through their chief's brain..." with more (see).
Most reports on the death of Jesse James were not much more than a paragraph. This report is uncommonly lengthy with much more detail than typically found.
Complete in four pages, loose at the spine, in very nice condition.

Featured in "Newspapers that shaped the world..."
