A Brief History:  Check our Photos of  “The Defeat of Jesse James Days Celebration”

The infamous and deadly James-Younger Gang failed to rob the First National Bank of Northfield, Minnesota, when armed people in Northfield opened fire on the outlaws on September 7, 1876.
  The James brothers (Frank and Jesse), the Younger brothers (Cole, Jim, and Bob), and Charlie Pitts barely escaped, but two gang members, Clell Miller and Bill Chadwell (alias William Stiles), and two brave townpeople in Northfield were killed. After this, a massive manhunt ensued. As a result, almost all of the James-Younger gang was killed or captured. Only Frank and Jesse James escaped. For more details on Jesse James, check Bank Raid at Northfield Historical Society < http://www.northfieldhistory.org/ > or James & Youngers < http://www.civilwarstlouis.com/History/jamesnorthfield.htm >

Several years later after the unsuccessful attempt to rob the bank in Northfield, Jesse James was betrayed and murdered by Bob Ford, one of his gang. The Movie, “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford” opens 070921.

Check the long linen dusters, which the outlaws wear in the reenactment event, “The Defeat of Jesse James Days Celebration”. Do the dusters remind you of Clint Eastwood’s movies?

悪名高いアウトローのJesse Jamesは、アメリカでは、有名です。そのJesse JamesたちのギャングJames-Younger Gangの銀行強盗(1876年9月7日)を阻止し、Gangを撃退した、ミネソタのNorthfieldの町の人たちの勇気には、驚くとともに、尊敬します。写真で紹介した“The Defeat of Jesse James Days Celebration” は、毎年、ミネソタのNorthfieldで行われる再現イベント(reenactment event)です。たいへん迫力があります。For more details on Jesse James, check Bank Raid at Northfield Historical Society < http://www.northfieldhistory.org/ > or James & Youngers < http://www.civilwarstlouis.com/History/jamesnorthfield.htm >

その数年後、
Jesse Jamesは、大きな報酬金(huge bounty)に目のくらんだ自分の仲間の一人、Bob Fordに裏切られ、殺されました。私の友達の話しによれば、Jesse Jamesが、自分の家の絵の角度を直している(映画*では、絵のほこりを払っている)時、後ろから撃たれたそうです。* “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford” は、070921に公開。  For more info on the movie, check our Movie info.

アウトローの着ている白い長いコート(武器を隠すのに使われたそうです)を見ると、Clint Eastwoodの西部劇映画を思い出しませんか?Info on Clint Eastwood, check < http://www.clinteastwood.net/ >
