Jesse James gang outlaws ?...

Item # 600458

March 01, 1882

THE CLEVELAND LEADER, Ohio, March 1, 1882 

* Jesse James Gang 
* Outlaws killed

This uncommon 8 page issue has news of the day with several interesting advertisements throughout.
The front page has a one column heading: "Part of the James Gang Riddled With Bullets" The actual report is on page 2 with very small headings: "Dead Desperadoes" and "Poke Wells And Bill Morris Riddled With Bullets" See image for text here. Interesting as I cannot find record of these two being part of the James Gang. Could these two have been missed by historians ? Jesse James would be killed a little over a month later.

Complete, minor margin wear, otherwise in good condition.
