Left to right, standing, William Carver (News Carver), Harvey Logan (Kid Curry); sitting, Harry Longabaugh (Sundance Kid), Ben Kilpatrick (The Tall Texan), Robert LeRoy Parker (Butch Cassidy). The gang operated out of the Hole-in-the-Wall Pass in Wyoming, a notorious haunt of outlaw groups, between 1889 and 1901 robbing trains and banks across the West. Their activities came to an end in 1901. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid emigrated to South America (they are said to have been killed by Bolivian police after a robbery in 1908), Carver was killed in a shootout with lawmen, and Kilpatrick was captured in Tennessee and sentenced to 20 years in jail. Kid Curry, the most notorious member of the gang in terms of the number of people he killed, was shot and killed in a gunfight with lawmen in Colorado in 1904. Kilpatrick was released from prison in 1911 but was shot and killed the following year while robbing a train near Sanderson, Texas.
