Bonnie & Clyde Investigation

Near Gibsland, Louisiana, Bonnie & Clyde met their demise.  I’ve been to this area several times over the years, and seem to learn something new each time.  Recently, I made a return trip to the area.

The roadside markers south of Gibsland, Louisiana that designate where Bonnie & Clyde met their demise. The marker on the left has been there for decades and has many chips,  from where people have chipped off pieces to save. The marker on the right is newer, and was placed there in recent years. 

You may have seen the many movies that portrayed the story of Bonnie & Clyde as a romance. Recently, I returned to the Gibsland area, and much of the Bonnie & Clyde story leads me to believe that the romance sounds likely, but the couple, with some others, left a trail of death from the many crimes that they committed in several locations throughout the southwest.

In Gibsland, you can’t miss the Bonnie & Clyde Ambush Museum and the Authentic Bonnie & Clyde Festival Museum. Both museums seem to be rivals, within 75 yards of each other. The Authentic Bonnie & Clyde Festival Museum is free, and donations are accepted for the Bonnie & Clyde Festival that is held every May.  The Bonnie & Clyde Ambush Museum has a very informative film, and A LOT of memorabilia.

 That doesn’t look like Clyde, does it? It’s not.

I’ve been going through my wife’s spiral notebook of our hundreds of rv (& other) travel destinations, and looking through our photos, while organizing and posting them in our Journal at TomsMaHauL.com .  There, you’ll also see some of my posts on our “Future Travels” of planned adventures, and my “Projects” section, where I share some of the on-going things that I do to maintain the rv.  Visit the “About” page to get more of my story, and there’s our “Contact” page, to reach out to us.
