You’re fourteen years old. Soldiers come to your house, strap you to a plow and beat you. They then push your pregnant mother around and hang your step-father. What would you do?
Jesse James chose a side in the war.
You did your best during the war. There were many wrongs on both sides but it was now over so you rode in to surrender after being told you could. While riding in to surrender, you are shot though your chest. The surrender was just a trick. Somehow you’re still alive and while healing you learn you are now considered an outlaw and a price was placed on your head. What would you do? Die or continue the fight? What would you do?
Jesse James chose to start his career.
