(Just finished reading about Quantrill) I agree, I think Quantrill was a lot more criminal and even more brutal than cavalry and partisan rangers like Moseby and Forrest; though he was not near the commander that Forrest was.  His raids could be compared to the total warfare of Sherman and Sheridan, except Quantrill's force was a grain of sand compared to the enormous Union armies pillaging the South.
