American Experience

Jesse James - preview

Preview: Season 18 Episode 7 | 30s

The story of Jesse James remains one of America's most cherished myths... and one of its most wrong-headed. A product of the American Civil War, James was less heroic than brutal; America's own Robin Hood who robbed not only the rich, but the poor and defenseless as well, always saving the treasure for himself. 5/7/2013
