When the notorious James-Younger Gang rode into Northfield, Minnesota, to rob a bank, they hoped the sleepy little town would roll over and give them the fortune they sought. This didn t happen. Not only did the gang take away only pocket change, but the town mobilized against them so fast that two members of the outlaws lay dead in the street moments later. These men fought the notorious James-Younger Gang, resisted their demands and relentlessly pursued them through the countryside, finally catching up with them in Hanska Slough. Only Jesse and Frank James escaped the posses; the rest lay dead or in custody. These brave citizens deserve more credit than the anonymity of history. Here are the stories of twenty-one of these men, including the Magnificent Seven, who captured the Younger Brothers at Hanska Slough.
