I think maybe you all have missed the point of my post , yes i was wondering what folks thougt of Quantrill , but i was also wondering what you thought would turn a School teacher prior to the war into a leader of guerilla band.  Yes i Know that Lawrence is what he is well known for but I think Quantrill and his men and groups like them were a product of his times.

 

After the Kansas/Nebraska Act of 1854 is when the civil war started in MO , I think Quantrills band started out as a way for southern men to band together and protect themselves and Family from KS Jayhawkers.
