1. Outlaw Jesse James (partly) turned to crime as a means of exacting revenge on all things Yankee”— Time-Life Books’ The Wild West.
At seventeen, James left his native Missouri to fight as a Confederate guerilla in the American Civil War as part of Quantrill’s Raiders, participating in raids in Kansas. He once killed eight men in a single day. After the war, he returned to his home state and led one of history’s most notorious outlaw gangs. He was wounded while surrendering at the end of the war, and later claimed to have been forced into outlawry because his family had been persecuted in the war.
