Northfield was targeted by Jessie James because he thought there was nobody but farmers, but Northfield had many war veterans and they attacked Jessie James. The first one to build a steamboat and transport goods down the Red River would get an award of $1000 back then. They had the first post office and an old schoolhouse with only one room. All the buildings had cobwebs and dead flies everywhere.

My favorite animals are spiders. The animals that I find the most interesting are ants. I have a tarantula, who is a Chelian Rose hair tarantula.
