The following was written by Footnote:
Notorious gangsters, Bonnie and Clyde, ignited the citizens of the United States during their two-year crime spree. The public idolized their Robin Hood attitude during the Great Depression and watched with great interest while Bonnie and Clyde traveled around the country robbing and killing.
After burglarizing dozens of banks and stores, as well as killing over twelve people, including nine police officers, the police eventually caught up to the duo in Louisiana. On May 23, 1934, near Bienville Parish, Louisiana, Bonnie and Clyde were killed in an ambush. The police riddled their car with over one hundred rounds, killing both inside. Their death ended the famous crime spree, but immortalized this famous couple in America's memory. Bonnie and Clyde symbolized tragic love, rebellious youth, and the problems of an entire generation trying to get ahead in the desperate age of the Great Depression.
