William Clarke Quantrill
Good Monday Morning to you all. This morning we feature a photograph of William Clarke Quantrill of the famed Quantrill Raiders of the Civil War. He is remembered for his escapades along the Missouri-Kansas border during the Civil War, and more specifically the raid on Lawrence, Kansas. He was one of effective of the Raiders of that day, and was a particular thorn in the side of the Union. He was killed in a Union ambush in Kentucky, 1865. Brilliant horse soldier, or blood thirsty bandit? . . . the debate continues to this day.
