THE JESSE AND FRANK JAMES FARM

Jesse and Frank James were not, say, from Tennessee or Kentucky as many imagine but actually from Kearney, Missouri, near Kansas City.  During the Civil War they fought on behalf of the Confederacy in belief that U.S. President Lincoln meant to make slave-holding states free the slaves without paying compensation to the owners.  After the Civil War they led gangs who robbed many federal banks and railroads until Jesse was assassinated at St. Joseph, Missouri, but Frank surrendered and was pardoned.  Today just east of Kearney, their home includes a gift shop, museum, the house they lived in with their mother when not on the run, the gravesite where Jesse was first buried (since removed to Mt. Olivet Cemetery in Kearney), and a slave cabin replica of where their Afro-American half brother Perry lived.
