The gang had scouted out southern Minnesota and knew Northfield was their mark. They stopped for lunch before they hit the downtown Northfield bank. Crossing the iron bridge into Mill Square the water over the damn drown out the sound of the hooves.

Frank James was a fighter. He was a well-established horseman who knew how to pick the fastest and best rides. Because his father was a minister, the James family would frequently relocate around Missouri. After some time in the Civil War, he ended up fighting for a couple of Guerrilla warfare groups. This was a sign of what was to come.
