Transcript[]

The Gentleman Bandit (1829 - 1888) was a famous gentleman stagecoach robber noted for two things: the poetic messages he left behind after two of his robberies, and the fact that he never robbed stagecoach passengers, just the bank they were traveling with. While most stagecoach drivers and passengers were happy to fork over their wealth when confronted with a bandit, especially since it meant keeping their lives, the Gentleman Bandit never robbed them, though he did use that fear of death to his advantage. Eventually, he was caught and sent to prison. After his release, little is known of what happened to him. While some believe he retired peacefully, others theorize that he might have gone east to make another shot at robbery.
