The work of the infamous Sam Bass...
Item # 648128
September 20, 1877
NEW YORK TRIBUNE, Sept. 20, 1877
* Union Pacific Big Springs robbery
* Old West outlaw - train robber Sam Bass
The front page has: "A Train Robbed By Highwaymen" being a report about a train held up by "...thirteen masked men at Big Springs, Neb..." which provides nice detail about the "loot" which included $65,000 in coin and more. Although not mentioned here, this was the work of noted outlaw Sam Bass and his gang. This is said to be the first big time holdup for Bass.
Eight pages, browned a bit at the edges, the good condition.
