Imagine Jesse James coming to your house because you are a Unionist living in his state. He tells you to leave the state of Missouri and you tell him to “Shove it.” Jesse shoots you in the head on the spot, kills your entire family, burns down your plantation house and takes anything of worth. That was the life of a secessionist bushwacker during the Civil War. The James gang robbed Union train owners after the war.
