The Raid on the Northfield Bank, Part Two: Capture at Madelia


Follow the remnants of the wounded and decimated James-Younger gang as they flee the scene of their defeat at Northfield and straggle through rain and the Big Woods of southern Minnesota in an attempt to evade the largest manhunt in the nation’s history.  Two weeks after the robbery, an alert farm boy spots the remaining gang members, who are surrounded in the woods northwest of Madelia.  Seven brave volunteers answer the call to flush the robbers from their hiding place, and the James-Younger gang is no more.  Pictures of the posse, the capture site, and Stillwater Prison, and many others.
