Bonnie & Clyde: What Nobody Told You - YouTube

Bonnie Elizabeth Parker (October 1, 1910 – May 23, 1934)
and Clyde Chestnut Barrow (March 24, 1909 – May 23,
1934)


The criminal couple Bonnie and Clyde traveled the
Central United
States
with their gang during the Great Depression. The couple
were known for their
bank robberies, although they preferred to
rob small stores or rural funeral homes. 

Their exploits captured the attention of the American press and
its readership during what is occasionally referred to as the
"
public enemy era" between 1931 and 1934, when the couple
were ambushed and shot to death in
Bienville Parish, Louisiana.

They are believed to have murdered at least nine police officers and       
four civilians.


 

Bonnie and Clyde's bullet-riddled car went on display after the infamous couple's death.
