Bonnie and Clyde and their gang had been camping in an abandoned park, recovering from a earlier shootout, when they were ambushed on July 24, 1933, by a posse from the nearby town of Dexter. Every member of Bonnie and Clyde's gang left this gun fight either wounded or dying. Although both Bonnie and Clyde were wounded, they managed to escape on foot, stole yet another car, and carried on as outlaws for another ten months before finally dying in a hail of bullets in a Louisiana ambush.
Join this unique motorcycle tour ride to Dexter to hear the real story about the biggest shootout in Dallas County history from one of the finest local orators, Rod Stanley. There will be artifacts and era weapons. Also, a walking tour of the downtown area where Bonnie & Clyde bought food, clothes and medicine. Opportunities will be available to visit the museum also.
Lunch will be provided as part of the registration fee at the historic Roundhouse in Dexter where the presentation will take place. Riders also get the collector coin and can draw a poker hand upon their return to Jefferson.
