1864: Jesse James

(St. Louis Taylor Copying Co. / Library of Congress)

Outlaw Jesse James was around 17 when this portrait was taken towards the latter part of the American Civil War.  At this time, Jesse and his brother Frank had joined a Confederate guerrilla outfit led by ‘Bloody Bill’ Anderson.
