No Man But the Undertaker

March 22, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Clyde Barrow boasted that no man but the undertaker would ever get him. "Never go crooked. It's but for the love of a man that I have to die," Bonnie Barrow supposedly said to fellow gang member Henry Methvin two nights before she was killed. An ambush by six Texas Rangers put an end to the  two year, five state criminal odyssey of Bonnie and Clyde on May 23 of 1934. With the nostalgic glamour of their outlaw status, it's easy to overlook the dozen who died at their hands.

Yet the tale did survive their demise. Gibsland, LA holds a yearly festival near where the couple died.
