Baxter Springs, Kansas Bank Robbery

April 19, 1876---Two members of the James-Younger Gang rode into the town of Baxter Springs, Kanas. The two gang members were Charlie Pitts and Bill Chadwell. It is possible there were other members with them. Charlie and Bill entered the bank in town. Details are sketchy. How much they robbed is unknown. It was around a few thousand probably. The robbery went on smoothly though. It's possible that Jesse, Frank, and/or Cole was at the robbery too, but only Charlie and Bill entered. It's also possible that Jesse, Frank, and Cole planned the robbery out, and had Charlie and Bill actually comit it.
