3. Northfield, Minnesota. Wikipedia entry. "On September 7, 1876, Northfield experienced one of its most important historical events: an outlaw gang led by Jesse James tried to rob the First National Bank of Northfield. Local citizens, recognizing what was happening, armed themselves and resisted the robbers and successfully thwarted the theft... Considering the James gang as related to postwar insurgency, the raid has sometimes been called the last major event of the American Civil War." (Submitted on October 17, 2011.)
