From the FCS Book of Little-Known Facts (Laura Bullion outlaw)

Laura Bullion poses for a mug shot with Pinkertons

Established in 1850, the Pinkerton Detective Agency quickly became one of the most well known and trusted private security firms in America. They handled everything from transporting presidents to tracking down fugitives like Laura Bullion. This shot from 1893, shows Laura Bullion, a woman who worked as a part of the Wild Bunch – Butch Cassidy’s gang.

Bullion took park in Cassidy’s Great Northern train robbery and earned herself five years in prison in 1901. After she was released from prison she moved to Memphis, Tennessee where she tried to live a simple life away from crime. She accomplished that feat, but she fell into poverty as the 20th century continued on.
