The Great Northfield, Minnesota Raid

Next to the “Gunfight at the OK Corral” in Tombstone, Arizona, the James-Younger gang’s raid on Northfield, Minnesota is, perhaps, the best known event in the history of the wild west.

In the years after the war between the states, Jesse James and the James-Younger gang rose to prominence mostly in the mid-western areas that had previously been sympathetic to the Confederacy.

Northfield, however, proved to be their undoing. Neither sympathetic nor passive, the people of Northfield would put an end to the criminal reign of the James-Younger gang.

 The Arizona Gunfighters recreate this event as closely as possible to the way it actually happened utilizing almost their entire cast.  Due to certain space and building requirements, this show cannot be performed at all venues.
