“Jesse James” (57 min.) is a PBS documentary shown in conjunction with the Columbia Public Library’s interactive Civil War in Missouri exhibit. In this film, we learn that his story remains one of America’s most cherished and wrong-headed myths. A member of a vicious band of Missouri guerrillas during the war, James sought redemption afterwards, but, rode further from it, redeeming instead the glorious memory of the Old South. After the screening, we’ll take a tour through the library’s interactive Civil War in Missouri exhibit.
