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.

Black Bart Outlaw Poster – The Outlaw Poet

Charles Earl Bowles (b. 1829; d.after 1888), also known as Black Bart, was an English-born outlaw noted for the poetic messages he left behind after two of his robberies. Often called Charley by his friends, he was also known as Charles Bolton, C.E. Bolton and Black Bart the Poet. Considered a gentleman bandit with a reputation for style and sophistication, he was one of the most notorious stagecoach robbers to operate in and around Northern California and southern Oregon during the 1870s and 1880s.
