Contents: William Clarke Quantrill (July 31, 1837 - June 6, 1865) was a Confederate guerrilla leader during the American Civil War.

After a knockabout youth, he joined a group of brigands who roamed Missouri and Kansas, kidnapping runaway slaves in exchange for reward money. This apparently confirmed his pro-slavery views, and his group became Confederate 'bushwhackers', feared for their guerrilla tactics, which used effective Native American field skills. They included Jesse James and his brother. In August 1863, the group carried out a night raid on Lawrence, Kansas, a stronghold of anti-slavery sentiment, murdering over 180 civilians. In May 1865, Quantrill was mortally wounded by Union troops in Western Kentucky, in one of the last engagements of the Civil War.

This book also contains and alphabetical listing of all of the men who rode with Quantrill to which the author attests is complete. Also includes a brief statement as to what happened to the men (when known.)
