Escape into the true story behind a legendary gunman! For the first time ever, the true story of Kinnie Wagner is being told, from his birth in Virginia to his death in a Mississippi prison. Wagner began his career as a circus star and sharpshooter, a skill that would serve him well in his later career as an outlaw. He descended into a life of crime that included bootlegging, thieving, and murdering. This misconduct gained him recognition as the South’s most notorious gunman. In his long career, Wagner had more than a few run-ins with law enforcement. Bars couldn’t hold him, though, and he achieved infamy by repeatedly escaping, only to be recaptured. Multiple magazine articles, novelizations, and even folk songs have popularized his story.
