Makes sense. With the horses shooed away, he had to walk

Old Pete is correct, I saw the history show about Black Bart. He had a grudge against Wells Fargo, the show said WF would take advantage of the little guys, so Black Bart would walk all over NorCal to hold up their stagecoaches. He was shot twice, but never had shells in his shotgun because he did not want to hurt anyone.

Black Bart Days were a big thing when I was younger. I remember parade and carnival. The parade was down by Todas Santos park and the carnival was by Park and Shop.once they built the high rise buildings it seems Black Bart days were gone.

I have that Black Bart Banner. It was hung on the poles around the city. I’m thinking about donating it to the Concord Historical Society.

I wouldn’t donate it. The leftist DEM politicians will pawn it to buy chrome for the immigrants and sneakers for the usual suspects. Best votes money can buy!

I remember the carnival well. There was a field across the street from Park N Shop that would host it as well as Circus Vargas. I was 12 years old and would help pick up ping pong balls where you would try to win a goldfish. They would give me ride tickets to go on the Zipper.
