Jesse and Frank James did the first moving train robbery in the world here.
Located west of Adair, Iowa on old Hiwy 6 and south of Interstate 80, this site is the location of the first moving train robbery in the world. On July 21, 1873, the James Gang derailed a train they heard was carrying $75,000 worth of gold. Turns out, the train they wanted was delayed. They ended up with only $3,000 from the safe and passengers. While the engineer died instantly, the fireman later, and several passengers were injured. The law was soon after them and upped a bounty on Jesse's head which was later claimed after his death or murder depending on who is telling the story.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
