Item # 620964
July 27, 1881
ST. LOUIS GLOBE-DEMOCRAT, July 27, 1881
* Outlaw Jesse James-Younger gang hunted
* Rock Island railroad train robbery
Inside has continuing reporting concerning the infamous Rock Island Railroad train robbery by Jesse James & his gang, with column heads: "ROUTING THE ROBBERS" "A Reward of $50,000 to be Offered for the Train Wreckers" "...$10,000 Each for the Two James Brothers--The Railroads Footing the Bills" "JESSE JAMES" "The Bold Bandit Arrives in Kansas City and is Recognized" "His Abrupt Departure...". Lengthy & detailed coverage. Great to have this report in a Missouri newspaper.
Ten pages, a bit irregular at the spine, very nice condition.
