After the death of “Bloody Bill” James would fill the role of the avenger of not only “Bloody Bill” but also of what he thought to be the victimization of the Confederacy by the Union government. His role as the avenger was parlayed into his role as a noble brigand almost immediately after the death of Bill Anderson. As the James brothers began their careers as robbers the first bank they robbed was chosen because it was believed the man who killed Bill Anderson was a teller there.
