Duncans Mills in Sonoma County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
First Time Poetry Left At Stage Holdup
for honor and for riches,
but on my corns too long youíve tred
you fine haired sons of bitches.
On 22 July 1880 Black Bart struck that stage again but left no poetry. It was assumed that both times he travelled to and from his holdups on the North Pacific Coast Railroad, which began service 8 May 1877. In his twenty-eight stage robberies, Black Bart never fired a shot.
