Product Description

Jesse James 3 Poster Package

Jesse James 3 Poster Package – all three of our Jesse James Posters for $35 plus shipping.

Called Dingus by his pals, Jesse James was a cold blooded killer who was left over from the viciousness of the Civil War. Lifelong he was hunted like a wild animal, and justified his crimes by “they drove us to it. . . .” The Killing of Jesse James

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.

As word spread of Jesse’s death – Bob and his brother Charlie raced to the telegraph office and cabled Governor Crittenden: “I have killed Jesse James. St. Joseph. Bob Ford”. Jesse’s two murdering cousins rushed back to the James House, now swamped with curious onlookers. Spotting the local authorities, the brothers rushed up and staked their claim to the infamous deed.

“I’m Bob Ford,” gasped Bob, ” I shot him”.

“I’m Charlie Ford,” gushed his brother, “I saw him”.

Our poster paper is heavy duty stock, special ordered by the ream, and is the closest we have found to actual parchment paper that would have been used in the 19th century. It’s heavy weight and won’t get torn or blown off  the hitching post! We don’t stain it (reducing it’s life) all our aging is done with graphics – making them crisp and clear. Posters are all ~ 11 x 17 and are shipped flat.
