Whether you are a writer, historian, family descendant or simply enjoy escaping from the stresses of everyday life by joining others with a common interest in the James-Younger story, you will enjoy being a gang member.  We invite you to ride with us by joining now.

Members will receive our quarterly James-Younger Gang Journal which is filled with articles about the outlaws, their families and friends.  We publish new research and dispel tall tales which have been passed down through the generations and we issue book and movie reviews.

We sponsor an annual conference in areas around the United States which hold significance to the James-Younger history.  During our conference we present our annual Milton F. Perry award for the best contribution to the James-Younger history during the year.

We are dedicated to supporting the James Farm and Museum, Liberty Bank Museum, Northfield Bank Museum, Patee House Museum, Bushwhacker Museum, Milton F. Perry Research Library and all other historic sites and institutions preserving James-Younger era history.
