1909. The story of the leader of the most savage fighting unit in the Civil War. Quantrill, outside of the heads of government, was the most widely known man connected with the Civil War. His place in the public estimation of the South was based upon a misapprehension of his life and motives. He voluntarily imposed himself on the South. He told little of his prior life, and that which he did tell was wholly untrue. It is due to the South that his life be revealed as it actually was. This is not designed to be Life of Quantrill, but an account of those incidents of the Border Wars in which he and his men were leading characters. Partial Contents: The Quantrill Family; Early Life of Quantrill; From Ohio to Kansas; Quantrill in Kansas and Utah; Quantrill as a Kansas Teacher; Quantrill as Charley Hart-Lawrence; Quantrill as Charley Hart-The Traitor-The Morgan Walker Raid; Quantrill the Forsworn-What He Told the Missourians; Aftermath of the Morgan Walker Raid; Quantrill's Return to Kansas; Quantrill Becomes a Guerrilla; Quantrill Becomes Notorious; Quantrill Outlawed; The Lawrence Massacre; Quantrill in the Summer of 1864; and The Last Battle.
