Today we feature a photograph of the Gentleman Raider Frank James. Frank actually rode with William Clarke Quantrill in the Civil War, and was one of the famed Quantrill Raiders. After the war, this group did not enjoy the general pardon issued to other southern soldiers, so Frank James and his brother Jesse teamed up with other Quantrill Raiders to form the James-Younger gang, and the raiding continued. Frank James was born in 1843, and lived all the way to 1915.
