Jesse James, John Dillinger, Machine Gun Kelly, Bonnie and Clyde―James Copeland (born 1823) was the granddaddy of them all. This is his notorious history as recorded by the sheriff who arrested him in 1857. During the 1830s, ’40s, and ’50s, Copeland and his gang of outlaws ranged over territory extending from Mobile Bay to Lake Pontchartrain. The name “Copeland” became a fearsome household word. To this day, many are amazed that the life of one so young could have been so overfilled with felony. Dr. Pitts’s startling narrative of Copeland’s notorious life and heyday in crime was first published in 1858 and reprinted in 1874, 1909, 1980, and 1992. The account has never failed to fascinate.
