Bonnie & Clyde Ambush Marker. Near Gibsland. Louisiana.USA. December 2007

From"Eight miles south of the Ambush Museum, on an isolated stretch of highway, is the small stone monument that marks the death site of Bonnie and Clyde. It was erected in 1972, and has since been covered with graffiti, gouged with axes, and blasted with gunfire to the point where its inscription is barely legible. The many hearts and intertwined initials scrawled on the monument suggest that young couples often make pilgrimages here, digging the Bonnie and Clyde outlaw vibe. The romantic vandalism somehow seems appropriate. Bonnie and Clyde would have defaced monuments too."
