In a US first, the Reno Gang performs The Great Train Robbery near Marshfield, Indiana. They got away with $98,000 on 5/22/1868.

        Oh I could tell you stories of the glories of that train
        Of the 49'er miners and the time old Jesse James
        Stole a thousand golden nuggets in that great train robbery
        And when old Abe Lincoln rode with Tad upon his knee
