While traditionalist historians and others want everyone to believe that only two or three Guerrillas were still alive after Colonel William C. "Bloody Bill" Anderson gave a series of interviews to Henry C. Fuller of the "Brownwood Banner-Bulletin" in 1924 and even after he died in 1927, our Bloody Bill Anderson Mystery group has proven that more than these twenty Guerrillas lived on and not a single one ever went public saying that William C. Anderson's 1924 admission to being Bloody Bill was not the truth.
