Jesse James "I Will Never Surrender"

Gads Hill, Missouri was a tiny, peaceful town until Jesse James and his gang decided to commit the first peacetime train robbery in Missouri history. After robbing the train of thousands of dollars, the bandits left a note for the newspapers proclaiming their act "The Most Daring Robbery on Record." Many towns, trains, banks, and stagecoaches fell victim to the James-Younger gang. Although he was a criminal most of his life, Jesse James became a legendary figure in American history. Author Jeff Burlingame explores the life of this infamous outlaw.
