Old West Poster of Jesse James

Lifelong Jesse James was hunted like a wild animal, and justified his crimes by, “they drove us to it. . . .”

JESSE JAMES
The Middle Border Marauder

Called Dingus by his pals, Jesse James, was a cold-blooded killer who was left over from the viciousness of the Civil War.

The James Gang finally met their “Waterloo” in Northfield Minnesota on September 7, 1876, while trying to escape town after trying to rob the bank. A number of circumstances came together that morning that left the gang shot to hell and what remained alive was chased for 2 weeks by as many as a 1000 posse riders.

In Springfield that morning the town was full of men with long arms buying ammo and getting them ready for the first day of the hunting season.  The holdup in the bank did not go smoothly, and Jesse alerted the town to their attempted robbery when he shot above the head of the book-keeper to get him to open the safe.  When the gang exited the building they immediately came under fire from rifles from just about every part of the street and buildings. The James Gang fired back with pistols as they tried to get their mounts and get off the street where they were getting decimated by the withering rifle fire.

Jesse was the only one who rode out of Northfield without a bullet wound, and it would be six more years before Bob Ford would be “the dirty little coward that killed Mister Howard.”   The Killing of Jesse James

Cowboy Pictues Wild Bill Hickok Poster

Wild Bill Hickok Poster

Wild Bill Hickok circa 1870Wild Bill Hickok

James Butler Hickok

The prototype of the old west pistol fighter, Bill Hickok had the size, the sad eyes and the heroic exploits to make an impression on most any body.

When Dave Tutt bragged he could, “Shoot a bird on the wing“, in Springfield, in 1865, Bill Hickok was quick to reply, “Did the crow have a pistol? Was he shooting back? I will be.”

There’s a number of reasons people say Hickok and Tutt fought, but what ever it was, this is one of the few actual documented face offs in a dusty street in Old West History.

And so on July 21, 1865, in the town square of Springfield, Missouri, Hickok shot dead Davis Tutt, Jr. from across the plaza.

Billy The Kid Poster

Billy The Kid Poster

BILLY THE KID

William H. Bonney II

He was twenty-one and boldly bragging he’d killed 21 men, as he stood trial for his life. Hard men were all about the kid, with sidearms on their hips and rifles in their hands. The wild young man was found guilty and on April 8, 1881, was sentenced by Judge Warren Bristol, to hang by the neck, until, “dead, dead, dead.

On April 28, Pat Garrett went off to buy lumber for the gallows, and Billy went to work. There’s three different stories on how Billy got his hands on a firearm that morning, but get one he did, and then The Kid cheerfully shot Deputies Bell, and Ollinger, and escaped the makeshift jail at Lincoln, New Mexico.

Pat Garrett later said, “I knew now that I would have to kill the Kid. We both knew that it must be one or the other of us, if we ever met.” Kinda of melodramatic, but regardless Billy was dead 2 months later, from a bullet in the back supposedly from Garrett hiding in ambush. Garrett’s Badge

  • Buffalo Bill Cody Poster - William Frederick Cody Buffalo Bill’s show business career began  at the age of 26, on December 17, 1872 in Chicago. Ned Buntline (The man that immortalized Cody, Hickock and scores of other Wild West personalities in his dime novels) had written a play called "The Scouts of the Prairie". Cody appeared in it, as did another well-known scout, Texas Jack Omohundro, as well as Buntline. Reviews of Cody's acting were mixed but he was a natural in front of an audience, and actor or not, Buffalo Bill was a showman.By the time Bill died in 1917, he had laid the ground work for the modern rodeo and was the most recognizable person on earth.

  • Black Bart Outlaw Poster - The Outlaw Poet Bart's first stagecoach robbery was reported in August of 1877. His method was simple - he'd wait for the stagecoach around a tight corner, with flour sack over his face (with two holes cut/ripped for the eyes) derby on his head, and shotgun in his arms wearing a long, linen duster. He'd exchange the contents of the strong box for a copy of some poetry and always signed it, Black Bart, PO-8. Bart was eventually caught - did his time - then disappeared into the pages of old west lore. All Authentic Wanted Posters Package Legends of the West Posters Package Original Wild West Poster Line
  • George Armstrong Custer Poster - Colonel U.S. 7th Cavalry Not only was Ulysses Grant a real military genius, he was an astute politician. In 1875 President Grant knew there was a possibility that George Custer could be the Democratic Candidate for the Presidency in the next election. Grant knew Custer; knew he was charismatic, liked to talk, and knew how to do it. Everything the President wasn't. So President Grant had Custer transferred out west, knowing that there'd be a good chance Custer would get himself killed. Custer couldn't help himself, and on June 25, 1876 his headstrong, break-neck attack methods sealed his fate, and that of his command against the 2000 or more Sioux and Cheyenne at the Little Big Horn or Greasy Grass River.

  • John Wesley Hardin Poster The Terror of Texas Wes Hardin was so mean there's a story about Hardin staying at a boarding house - packed full of men. One of the men in the other room was snoring hard enough to bend the walls, and Hardin yelled over for culprit to cease and desist, or face the consequences. The man apologized, then an hour later, started right in snoring again. Wes yanked out his colt revolver and let loose. Did the man die? - who knows; no one's even sure the story ever took place - but with Hardin being as mean as a rattler, it could have.
