    Default Jesse James - conspiracy theory

    Watched the show in full that gave me the information about the Knights of the Golden Circle and how Jesse was working for them the entire time and that his robberies were actually used to finance the order and also to help the confederacy rise again.

    A couple of points that I found compelling in the show:

    1. The archeologists followed clues to specific locations in central Kansas and found three main sites with JJ's carved into the stone, a lot of secret code as well in glyph form.
    2. They dug at one of these sites and found a broken Mason jar, and digging further found 21 silver dollars a gold 10 dollar and a gold 20 dollar, the coins were from after Jesse was supposed to have died (simple explanation could be that someone else continued to bury the coins)
    3. At a second site they found a small gold bar
    4. They claimed that Jesse faked his own death and they performed facial recognition on a young Jesse and the corpse and found that it was inconclusive but not an exact match, they also did facial recognition on a JM James who lived until 1935/6 and it was almost identical..
    5. Frank James was pardoned by Crittendon, so why would one brother be executed (Crittenden was supposed to have employed Bob Ford to commit the assassination of Jesse) and one pardoned when they were charged with the same crimes?
    6. The show finished with them running out of money for the excavation of a site that they claimed had a large chest shaped object in the ground, winter had also stopped them being able to dig.

    One thing I found interesting was that the archelogists were carrying shotguns, are there any dangeorous creatures in Kansas or would they be using them for the snakes? (They showed some on the show).

    All very compelling as far as conspiracy theories go, does anyone have any further knowledge on this?

    Cheers
    Todd

    They stopped when the money ran out. JJ isn't the only crook in this story. I don't mean any disrespect to you with that statement but the legend of Jesse James is dripping with bs in my opinion.

    Happy to hear your opinion, after all that's what makes History so entertaining and also controversial, it really is dependant on what you yourself think, believe and are brought up on.

    The only thing dangerous in Kansas is the boredom.

    I thought that was the case. I was wondering if they were maybe carrying guns because:

    A) they wanted to add to the mystery

    or

    B) they were trespassing on private property

    I am stuck in KC for another few months, and grew up here. Having been to Jesse James house (where you can see the dent his head made in the wood floor where he hit, after he was shot), the guy was a common criminal. Nothing else. The fact that these guys are out wandering around with shotties in the farmlands is curious. Out in the boonies here, people tend to shoot at people they see on their lands with shotguns digging stuff up. I once heard a firefight between rival families near where I grew up hunting. It all settled down after one family burned the other familys home down. like completely down.

    Don't buy into the hype these guys are selling.
