Origin[edit | edit source]

Jesse Woodson James (1847 - 1882) was an American outlaw, bank and train robber, guerrilla and the leader of the James-Younger Gang. During the time of the Civil War he fought for the Confederate in a fang of guerrillas known as bushwhackers. After the war James and his fellow soldiers continued their rampage turning to robbing banks, stagecoaches and trains across the Midwest. James was considered the Robin Hood of the West as he robbed from the rich however he never gave to the poor, just to his gang. This was also portrayed when the gang held up stagecoaches as they wouldn't rob from the passengers instead opting for the safes in the baggage cars.

Effects[edit | edit source]

Passing the saddle with more than one hundred dollars worth of valuables has those items removed from a person and transported into the safe.
