"Anarchy in the Heartland" is the true story about the world's first three train robberies that occurred just after the Civil War in the Midwest. These bold robberies not only stunned a war-weary nation, they resulted in horrific violence against suspected gang members by dozens, if not hundreds, of law-abiding citizens. Their gruesome retribution shocked the civilized world far more than the never-before-seen train robberies. As a direct result, a diplomatic incident with Canada and Britain unfolded in Washington, DC. The tragic events of 1868 were suppressed for years due to shame and fear of prosecution. "Anarchy in the Heartland" not only examines the historical record, but the widespread hearsay and rumors that surrounded the area's wealthy business leaders-turned vigilantes. For the first time, discover the breakdown of society that few wanted to publicize; including the United States Government.
