Military Personnel
    (1839-October 26, 1864)
    Nicknamed Bloody Bill
    Anti-Federal bushwacker responsible for the murder of dozens of Union soldiers and sympathizers during the Bleeding Kansas & the Missouri Border War (1854-65)
    Ambushed and murdered in Richmond, Missouri by Captain Samuel P. Cox and his Union troops at age 25
    Though he spent most of his childhood and civilian life in Missouri he called himself a Kansan.
    It was reported he sometimes frothed at the mouth during the heat of battle.
    He helped William Quantrill carry out a raid of Lawrence, Kansas where houses were torched and about 200 male civilians were killed (August 21, 1863).
    He led the Centralia Massacre in Missouri where 23 Union soldiers on leave were slaughtered at a train station (September 27, 1864).
    When some begged for their lives, he laughed, pumped them full of bullets and mutilated their bodies.
    Human scalps were found with his body as was a silk rope with 53 knots in it, his way of keeping track of personal kills.
    His father was murdered by a pro-Unionist when he was 23.
    He resisted full scale fighting until soldiers imprisoned his three sisters in 1863.
    The makeshift prison collapsed, killing one sister and crippling another.
    If he discovered his men had robbed Confederate sympathizers he would return the stolen property to them.
    After he was killed he was propped up in a chair, a gun placed in his hand and his bullet riddled body was photoed.
    He was then decapitated, his head put on a pole and his torso dragged through town on the back of a horse.
    Years later fellow guerrilla fighter Cole Younger asked for and was granted permission to give him a proper funeral procession.
