A Yankee outlaw and a Confederate CEO

Charles Earl Boles was better known as Black Bart the gentleman outlaw. Among other things Boles had been with Sherman during his March to the Sea.

Black Bart robbed many Wells Fargo stages in areas of Oregon and California after the war and was caught and released from prison in 1883 and was last saw alive in 1888.

Much has been written about Black Bart however not so much of some of the Wells Fargo executives. One of them in that area at the time the robberies were going on was former Confederate Lieutenant Colonel Dudley Evans of the 20th Virginia Cavalry.

In 1886 Dudley Evans became the CEO of the Wells Fargo Company and held that position until his death in 1910 in New York.
