AS PLAYED BY:
Charles Earl Bolles (1829–Disappeared 1888?), alias Black Bart, was an American Old West outlaw noted for his poetic messages left after each robbery. He was also known as Charles E. Boles, C.E. Bolton, Charles E. Bowles, and "Black Bart the Po8." A gentleman bandit, Black Bart was one of the most notorious stagecoach robbers to operate in and around Northern California and southern Oregon during the 1870s and 1880s. The fame he received for his numerous daring thefts is rivaled only by his reputation for style and sophistication.
Matt Clark took credit for getting him sentenced to prison, but at least the episode does highlight the poetic nature of Black Bart.....
