Sam Bass

Sam Bass was an American Old West train robber and outlaw…he was a failure at legitimate attempts to make a living so he turned to crime…like others, he held up trains and stagecoaches…he was successful eluding the Texas Rangers until he was informed on by one of his own gang…an ambush was set up at Round Rock, Texas for Bass…once aware of the ambush, Bass tried to escape but was shot…he was found by deputies lying in a pasture…he was taken into custody, but died the next day which was July 21, 1878 which just happened to be his 27th birthday…
