 Could men from Boone County be the perpetrators of the first peace-time train robbery in U.S. history? ​ To this day, historians disagree. ​ On May 5, 1865, as many as twenty men crossed in four skiffs from [[Boone County]] to a spot near North Bend, Ohio. They successfully moved one of the train rails, causing the derailment of a St. Louis-bound Ohio and Mississippi express train that had just left Cincinnati.  ​ Could men from Boone County be the perpetrators of the first peace-time train robbery in U.S. history? ​ To this day, historians disagree. ​ On May 5, 1865, as many as twenty men crossed in four skiffs from [[Boone County]] to a spot near North Bend, Ohio.
