Ride with the Devil - William Quantrill

Via The Feral Irishman


  1. That is a great film that shows the brutality of living in "co-mingled" areas during a civil war. Southeast Missouri was a bad place to be in those day. While nothing like the Lawrence raid occurred in northwest Alabama, there were many brutal accounts of "bushwhacking", ambushes, retaliatory raids, etc. carried out by "pro-Union" loyalists, Confederate Homeguards, and rival families in and around the "Free State of Winston". A prime example is this excerpt from "Tories of the Hills". It tells of the agonizing death of Henry Tucker.

    1. Terrible and thanks.
