The Clay County Savings Association was robbed by the James-Younger gang on Febuary 13th, 1866. Jesse James, his brother Frank, and the Younger brothers, Jim, Bob, and Cole robbed banks and trains to protest the Confederacy losing the Civil War. This was also common behavior for their leaders (Quanrill and William Anderson) and fellow guerrillas during the war.
