MNHS The Story of Cole Younger Softcover book by Thomas "Cole" Younger. Forward by Marley Brant. Born near Lee's Summit, Missouri, Thomas Coleman "Cole" Younger (1844-1916) rode with William Clarke Quantrill's Confederate raiders during the Civil War, participating in many daring and bloody exploits, including the infamous Lawrence, Kansas massacre of 1863. Following the war, Younger continued his celebrated career as a deperado, robbing banks and trains with Frank and Jesse James in the James-Younger Gang. A fateful attempt in 1876 on the Northfield, Minnesota bank sent Cole to the Stillwater prison for decades. Here he became a model resident, helping both to protect women inmates during a fire and found the "Prison Mirror", the longest running inmate operated newspaper in this country. Paroled in 1901, Younger was eventually pardoned, operated a Wild West show with his old comrade Frank James, and lectured on "What My Life Has Taught Me". Always known for intelligence and coolness under pressure, he published this autobiography in 1903, reflecting on the colorful and sometimes violent experiences of "the gentleman, the soldier, the outlaw, and the convict." 0 stars, based on 0 reviews 0 5
