The Jesse Myth

At the end of the war, Edwards chose not to give up the Yankees and fled to Mexico, from where he returned only after the passions had subsided. Having become an influential journalist, he supported James in every way and was the first to print Jesse’s letters in his newspapers, giving him the opportunity to openly express his political views. He is called the man who created the myth of Jesse. As one historian noted: “Without Jesse, John Newman, Edwards probably would not have become the leading newspaper publisher in Missouri, and without Edwards, Jesse James would not have become such a special political hero for the former Confederates.” Edwards’ articles not only gave the gang an alibi after various robberies. Thanks to his efforts, readers fell in love with the James Yangers, considering them to be good people, forced to break the law due to repression of the federal government. Continue reading

Gang jesse james

Jesse James was born on September 5, 1847 in County Clay, Missouri. He did not remember his father, Robert James. When the boy was two years old, gold was found in California, and Robert went on a long journey, hoping to get rich and bring his family there.

Ruben turned out to be a worthy husband and a good father. His estate flourished, black slaves helped the family with the household … Continue reading

Cowboys and Wild West Indians

On the very hot day of June 12, the equally hot annual Wild Western Festival was held for the fifth time in the Mozhaisk District of the Moscow Region on the territory of the Outpost equestrian base. This year, the venue for the event was launched for the tribes of the Indians with their master classes and for cowboys with their endless leaps, seducing girls, catching mustangs and fun cowboy dances on the Saloon stage.

In the morning, a “children’s town” began to work for young guests, where they were able to see pony club performances, participate in various competitions, and ride horses and ponies. For many children and their parents this sunny day has become unforgettable. Children ran after a tribe of Indians, climbed on the hayloft and played cowboys, and also admired cute animals: llamas, geese, horses and ponies. Continue reading
