The truth behind the Kansas massacre. One of the more misunderstood campaigns of the Civil War, Col. William Clarke Quantrill‘s raid on Lawrence, Kansas, took place on August 21, 1863. Catalyzed by the deaths of three young women who were close relatives to members of Quantrill‘s partisan ranger company, the carefully planned guerrilla raid resulted in the killing of hundreds. Petersen sets the record straight in this well–documented narrative on the causes, realities, and results of the much–debated clash on the bloody Kansas–Missouri border.
