William Clarke Quantrill Kentucky 1865


William Clarke Quantrill was a famous bushwhacker who led an infamous raid on Lawrence, Kansas on August 21, 1863.

I look closely at Quantrill, his aims in going to Kentucky and the men who were his followers. The Kansas-born Confederate guerrilla found sympathizers loyal to the CSA cause, particularly in Nelson County, KY. In fact Quantrill had taken up in the barn of Confederate sympathizer James Wakefield when he and his band were surprised by Union troops under Edwin Terrell on the morning of May 10, 1865.
