no different that Stonewall Jackson, John Moseby, William T. Sherman, Nathan Bedford Forrest or even Grant & Lee.

Must object to the inclusion of Quantrill in this company. The closest remotely comparable to Quantrill's activities was Moseby, and he would slap my jaws for that if he were here. Moseby fought for the Confederacy -- not for plunder or personal gain or vengeance. Quantrill's victims tended to be civilians, the more helpless, the better. He was a beast turned loose in a time when beasts were common. No one today would know who he was if it weren't for the James', Youngers and Daltons.
