January 31. This day in history....


1874 was the date of the first train robbery by the James gang. Gads Hill, Missouri.

Jesse handed the conductor a hand written press release so the newspapers would get the story right. Thus, probably began the decline of journalism as a career since the reporter who might have covered the story, did not earn pay that day.


There was also the 370th anniversary of Charles 1’s regicide on 30 January.


(Not bringing up politics: to me, this incident is also deeply connected with the founding of the colonies that became the USA)
