Joseph Lee Heywood
Distinguished Service
Award ­Recipient
Nola Matheson
The heroes that day were many: J.S. Allen, the merchant who first sounded the alarm;
A.R. Manning, who shot a horse, wounded Cole Younger and killed William Chadwell
using only a single shot rifle; Henry Wheeler, who killed Clell Miller and wounded
Bob Younger with an old Army carbine he found in the lobby of the Dampier Hotel;
and the one who gave the most that day, Joseph Lee Heywood, who died because he
wouldn’t open the bank vault and betray the trust of the owners of the bank. It is the
extraordinary courage of these ordinary men that we honor on the weekend after Labor
Day each year.
Joseph Lee Heywood
“Faithful Unto Death”
The heroes were many
It lasted but seven minutes and when it was over, two of the robbers lay dead on the street with two more
badly wounded. As the remaining six ruffians fled to the south and west, the largest manhunt in the history of
these United States was being organized. Frank and Jesse James were not caught after the botched raid, but the
Younger brothers were captured and Charlie Pitts was killed after a furious gun battle near Madelia,
Minnesota, two weeks later.
Defeat comes swiftly
Meanwhile, out on the street, local citizens began to arm themselves when one of their merchants discovered
the robbery in progress. Upon this discovery, two of the gang members sprang to their saddles and began firing
their pistols and yelling for all to leave the area or be shot. This forced the three remaining robbers to enter the
fray. The first to fall was a Swedish immigrant named Nicholas Gustafson, who remained on the street, not
understanding English. Gustafson was wounded in the head and died several days later.
The scene on the street
On a bright and sunny Thursday in September of 1876, eight bandits rode into Northfield intent on robbing the
First National Bank. The date was September 7 and the time was 2:00 p.m. Later it would be called “a textbook James-Younger bank robbery,” and it began with three of their number entering the bank and
announcing that this was a holdup. The desperadoes ordered the three bank employees to open the safe but
were told that the door was locked and couldn’t be opened.
