Jesse James thesis statement help?

I need help writing a Jesse James thesis statement for my jerk history teacher. It can't have adjectives, must invite debate, and must be good. The assignment is about a specific time period or moment in that persons life. I was thinking about doing his time in the bushwhacker gang. Please help!

    Jesse James had earned many titles in his short life. None of the descriptions are flattering and yet he was a celebrity even when he was alive and became a legend at death. Jesse James had an expertise in many areas such as gang leader, outlaw, bank robber, train robber, and murderer. His participation in the Bushwacker Gang initiated him into a life of crime. James was portrayed as a psychologically troubled man instead of a social rebel. Jesse James remains a controversial figure in history. Because of the success of his work with the Confederate Army, some regard him as a hero.

    (there are quite a few adjectives in here but they are also facts so I hope that is ok since they are factual.)
