Yes, I base my posts on facts -- facts documetnted in Federal, State and County records. Those who support the Wm. C. Anderson story have routinely discounted those records, claiming that they were all altered as some sort of conspiracy. Such an undertaking would require the complicity of scores (if not hundreds) of co-conspirators.
They have busied themselves with pointing out the insignificant undotted "i"s and uncrossed "t"s in the historical accounts of Wm. T. Anderson, but have offerred no proof whatsoever that Wm. C. was THE Bloody Bill. They offer only quotes from Brown County citizens that believed his story, and the unsubstantiated story of Dr. Skinner, who claimed that Cole Younger met with Wm. C. in 1908 and believed him to be BB. There's also the claim that J. Frank Dalton agreed that Wm. C. was BB. I have personally read hundreds of letters, memoirs, journals, diaries and interviews of former guerrillas, and have yet to find any mention of ANY guerrilla named Dalton. Dalton's credibility is nil. He at one time Dalton claimed to have been (at the age of about 70) a pilot in WW I, and to have been Jesse James' cousin. He later amended the latter claim to become Jesse himself.
