"On This Day in American History"



On October 6, 1866, the first robbery of a moving train in the United States occurs in Indiana. After bandits make off with $10,000, robbing moving trains becomes popular in the American West. The sparsely populated, isolated areas are ideal for stopping trains, which often carry large quantities of cash and precious minerals.
