The James-Younger Gang is shot to pieces in Minnesota.
September 7, 1876. Members of the James-Younger Gang attempt to rob the First National Bank in Northfield, Minnesota. Citizens fight back, and the bank clerk refuses to open the vault. In the melee that follows, two locals–the clerk, Joseph Lee Heywood, and bystander Nicholas Gustavson–are killed. Robbers Clell Miller and Bill Stiles also die. And the other outlaws are wounded. Two weeks later, a posse captures the Younger brothers and kills Charlie Pitts. Frank and Jesse James, both hurt, make their way back home to Missouri.
