Explore Madelia History/Younger Brothers Capture
September 15th, 2018

The Younger Brothers rode with the Jesse James Gang and were part of the attempt to rob the Northfield Bank. When the holdup was foiled the gangs split up and the Younger Brothers ended up near Madelia where they were captured.There is a very realistic reenactment of the capture at the very
site where they were captured. The actual emphasis of this event is to promote the heroism of the posse because the posse was made up of ordinary citizens of the town. They were husbands, fathers, and brothers who volunteered even though they did not know what would happen. This event brings tourists and out of town people who are interested in the history of the Old West.
