The Bonnie & Clyde Historical Newspaper Reprint from the Dallas Morning News of May 24, 1934 is a unique document on the death of this infamous outlaw couple. Bonnie and Clyde were well known robbers and criminals who traveled the central United States with their gang during the Great Depression. Between 1931 and 1934, during the "public enemy era," their exploits grabbed the attention of the American public. Today, they are mostly known by their dozen or so bank robberies and murders. The gang is said to have killed at least 9 police officers and several civilians. Learn from the Bonnie & Clyde Historical Newspaper Reprint how these bandits were eventually ambushed and killed, in Louisiana, by law officers.
E.R. Milner, a historian, writer, and expert on Bonnie and Clyde and their era, explains the popularity of this duo during the Great Depression and continuing on through the decades. He says that to people who "consider themselves outsiders, or oppose the existing system," Bonnie and Clyde represent the ultimate outsiders, revolting against an uncaring system.
The Bonnie & Clyde Historical Newspaper Reprint is a special full size reprint of the entire newspaper. It makes a great gift for people with a special interest in history and criminology!
