    BILL CHADWELL, CLELL MILLER KILLED IN NORTHFIELD RAID CDV 1876 August, 1876. James-Younger gang started their trip north to Northfield, Minnesota. Gang included: Frank and Jesse James, Cole, Bob and Jim Younger; Charley Pitts, Clell Miller, and Bill Chadwell.
    September 6th gang arrives in Northfield. The gang divided into three parts. Jesse James, Bob Younger, and Charley Pitts went into the bank. Cole Younger and Clell Miller stood outside the bank. Frank James, Jim Younger and Bill Chadwell stayed in their saddles at the end of the street.
    The behavior of the new comers gave the towns people the impression that a bank robbery was in progress. J. A. Allen business owner walked up to Clell Miller and asked, "What's going on here, young man?" Miller told him to get out of there and shoved Allen off the boardwalk. This rough behavior convinced the towns people that their suspicions were right; the Bank was being robbed. The towns people got their rifles and handguns; the rest is history. Printed on back of CDV "Bill Chadwell, Clell Miller The bank Robbers killed at Northfield". Photographed by E. F. Everitt, Mankato, Minn. The towns people propped them up in chairs and had this rare Image taken. 2.5"x4.5"; Very good condition
