"The [Sundance] Kid revealed too much about his criminal past while drunk."


Harry Alonzo Longabaugh was best known as the sundance kid because he was the most famously known as a bank robber, murderer, and a gang member. He was born in 1865 in Pennsylvania. The sundance kid's nationality was American. He was the youngest of five in a baptist family. In the 1900s the Kid had hooked up with Butch Cassidy and the Wild Bunch. The Wild Bunch is a loose group of outlaws who roamed the Rocky Mountains robbing trains, banks, and payrolls. Between 1889 and 1901, the Wild bunch reportedly collected more than 200,000 a sum worth more than $2.5 million and then they spent it on themselves. They were all selfish and had no conscience. After that Cassidy, The Kid, and The Kids wife Ethel, also known as Etta Place, set a sail Buenos Aires on the S.S Soldier Prince on February 20, 1902. The Kid and Etta traveled as Mr. and Mrs. Harry D.Place , while Cassidy took the name James T.Ryan posing as the brother of Mrs.Place.
