Thunderbolt was an Australian bush ranger. His grave is located at Uralla, NSW Australia.
This bearded dragon was lying on top of his grave stone. Thunderbolts real name was Fred Ward.

but why where they outlaws?
thats the main question that comes to mind to me
for example did they turn to crime to help provide for their family or was it for the fame?

In Capt. Thunderbolt's case he resigned as a horse groomer and went into horse stealing with his brother and one of his brothers friend. They were arrested for this crime and continued a life of crime after their release.
When people walk away from you...let them go. your destiny is never tied to anyone who leaves you, and it doesn't mean they are bad people...It just means that their part in your story is over.
