Jesse Woodson James (September 5, 1847 – April 3, 1882) was an American outlaw. He was the most famous member of the James-Younger Gang in 1875. He was shot in the back of the head and killed by Robert Ford, a member of his gang for a $10,000 bounty that was placed on James by then-Missouri governor Thomas T. Crittenden.
