William Clarke Quantrill: his life and times by Albert Castel( Book )

2 editions published in 1962 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Quantrill legend is rooted in acts of savage violence throughout Kansas and Missouri during the Civil War - deeds both romanticized and vilified. In William Clarke Quantrill, Albert Castel's classic biography, the story of Quantrill and his men comes alive through facts verified from firsthand, original sources. Castel traces Quantrill's rise to power, from Kansas border ruffian and Confederate Army captain to lawless leader of "the most formidable band of revolver fighters the West ever knew." During the Civil War Quantrill and his men descended on Lawrence, Kansas, and carried out a frightful massacre of the civilian population. Some of Quantrill's bushwhackers made names for themselves at Lawrence or after the war, as outlaws: "Bloody Bill" Anderson, Cole Younger, George Todd, "Little Archie" Clement, and Frank and Jesse James."--BOOK JACKET
