Cump, I have to admit not knowing anything about that. Either my memory is failing me or I simply never got up to speed on Quantrill. What's the scoop on him? Wasn't he heading east for an attempt to assasinate Lincoln or is that urban legend?
I just got home from spending the weekend in Amite County, Mississippi. Did some grave hunting with cousin Virgil Roberts. Finally got to visit the grave of my Paternal 5th great-grandfather Isaac Jackson. He was a Revolutionary War vet from South Carolina. Was a good day for sure :-)
