Summary: Audie portrays a young Jesse James. He and his brother Frank join the Quantrill Raiders gang led by the notorious William Quantrill, played by Brian Donlevy. Quantrill and his gang consider themselves Confederate sympathizers. Jesse and Frank are motivated to join the group to avenge the deaths of their murdered parents. Both quickly become disillusioned with the senseless violence and the looting of innocent people. The gang's reputation becomes best known for its bloody attack on Lawrence, Kansas. Jesse finally realizes that this is not the life he wants to lead but stays with Quantrill until the soldiers find them. Quantrill forces Jessee to leave. Quantrill then faces the Yankee's gunfire alone and is killed. Jesse manages to escape with his own gang and rides off into history.
