  The link below discusses the history of one county in Missouri from the mid 1850s to the end of Reconstruction. It includes the prominent part played by the family of Jesse James, and the persona of him created after the war to a large degree by former Major John Newman Edwards.

The Economist, 10/5/02 - Biographer T.J. Stiles

  Jesse James was killed on this date in 1882.
