Sam Bass Gang member captured...

Item # 613591

October 17, 1877

ST. LOUIS GLOBE-DEMOCRAT, Missouri, October 17, 1877

* re. Union Pacific Big Springs train robbery
* Jim Berry of Sam Bass Gang captured

This uncommon Midwestern title has news of the day with many advertisements. Page 5 has an article headed: "Glascock's Grit" "How Berry, the Alleged Train Robber, was Captured" and more. (see)
This issue is not fragile as newsprint back then was made of cotton and linen rags, allowing them to remain very pliable and easy to handle. Complete in 8 pages, a little irregular along spine, nice condition.
