Summary note
"For career criminal William Clarke Quantrill, the American Civil War was an opportunity to practice legitimately what he loved most: theft, destruction, and murder ... [This] book deals with [his life and] Quantrill's bloodiest battle, the four-hour sacking of Lawrence, Kansas, where he ordered the massacre of 185 men and boys."--Jacket.
Notes
"A Thomas Dunne book."
