Which group of notorious bad guys tried to rob a Northfield bank in 1876?

C) The James-Younger gang tries to rob the First National Bank in Northfield. Bookkeeper Joseph Lee Heywood delays the robbery by refusing to open the vault and is killed.

A gunfight in the streets of Northfield follows.Two robbers die in the that battle and two more were wounded. A posse eventually catches up with the rest of gang, killing one additional member and capturing all three of the infamous Younger brothers: Cole, Bob, and Jim.
