Pony Express Recruitment Poster – From April 1860 to October 1861 the Pony Express was the fastest way to get your message from the East to the West; and back again. The “young, skinny, wiry fellows” all had to weight less than 125 lbs, and had to cover the 1966 miles from St. Joseph, Missouri to Sacramento, California in ten days. Through every imaginable type of hardship they rode across the States of Kansas, Nebraska, Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada, and California. In October, 1861 the Telegraph Wire was completed to the West Coast and the Pony Express was finished.

These are exact replicas of actual Wanted Posters, Railway Circulars, Pinkerton Circulars, Exhibit Notices, and Vigilante Notices from about 1849 to 1900. Once a Wanted Poster Reward got big enough it usually resulted in the outlaws death or capture. Jesse James is a fine example of this.

The Killing {Assassination?} of Jesse James
The James-Younger Gang seldom strayed far from Missouri – except to do their robberies; confident their friends and family would hide them out. Once the reward got to 25,000 for Jesse it was just a matter of time before the dirty little coward (Bob Ford), would kill Mister Howard (Jesse James), as he stood on a chair to straighten a picture, in his own home.
