James Whitewater killed two men. While in prison from 1872-1889, he embraced Christianity. In 1889, the Nebraska legislature passed an act allowing the governor to pardon 2 inmates who had "been in jail more than 10 years or whose conduct while incarcerated merited such mercy." When released, Whitewater walked through the prison gates and "rolled in the grass from joy."
