I have written a book about the September 5, 1875 Huntington Bank robbery. This book is based on my great-grandfather’s recounting of this event. He said that the James-Younger gang committed the robbery and escaped capture by riding in his uncles’ (both lawmen) posse “looking for themselves”. The book is very well documented with many photos of the participants (including Frank & Jesse) and official court records proving the lawmen were “official peace officers”. Book should be available in about 3 months.
