William C. Quantrill (1837-1865)

William Clarke Quantrill was a bushwhacker who practiced an unsavory form of guerilla warfare during the Civil War, achieving the rank of colonel in the Confederate army. His most infamous act was an assault on Lawrence, Kansas: it resulted in the death of 150 men, women, and children, as his men ("Quantrill's Raiders") pillaged the abolitionist town for three hours and burned buildings. He was fatally wounded by Union troops during a raid in Kentucky.
