Butch Cassidy was a man who robbed, and he did it well. He and his now infamous gang, the “Wild Bunch,” pulled off dozens of robberies along the budding railways, nabbing thousands of dollars. Butch, or as his mother knew him, Robert LeRoy Parker, made a smart move when he and his gang realized that the cops were gaining on them, he and his buddy, the Sundance Kid, fled to South America.
