Reenactments of crimes committed in Daviess County are periodically featured in local festivals, such as Gallatin’s fall Chautauqua. Here reenactors portray the outlaw brothers Frank and Jesse James before crowds gathered just steps away from where the actual bank robbery and murder occurred in 1869 at today’s southwest corner of the Gallatin business square.


Interest in the life and legend of outlaws Frank and Jesse James never seems to wane.
