LKOKUM INTERESTING MEN OF HISTORY JESSE JAMES Jesse James was one of the most notorious ''bad men" in the history of the American West. He was the leader of a ruthless gang that stole thousands of dollars in a series of daring robberies. Innocent people were often the victims of his shootings. For years he lived as an outlaw with a price on his head. Jesse James has become a legend, and his deeds, some real and some invented, are part of the folklore of America. James was probably the most courteous bandit in history. He was soft-spoken and intelligent. Some of his frequent kindnesses and funny pranks won him a place in the hearts of law-abiding citizens. Jesse James was born in Missouri on September 5, 1847. His father, a Baptist minister, died when Jesse was a boy. During the Civil War, Missouri was on the side of the North, but when Jesse was only 16, he joined an outlawed band of Confederate raiders who attacked Union forces. At the close of the war Jesse James was living as a highwayman. He led a gang of bandits in daring crimes that shocked the country. The band held up banks, trains, and stagecoaches. Jesse James terrorized the countryside, but managed to escape the law. In 1881 Jesse bought a home in St. Joseph, Missouri. He grew a beard and changed his name to Tom Howard: For a while he lived quietly with his family and two members of his gang. On the morning of April 3, 1882, he was shot in the back of the head by one of these men, Bob Ford, who wanted to get a $10,000 reward that had been offered. Jesse was buried in the yard of the old family home. MOTHER! WHAJ^f By Greig Flessel DAVID CRANE By George Sixta By Ted Shearer STOMACHACHE, LkSH.. WHAT KINPA CAKE IS THIS.,?
