Members of Quantrill's Raiders

Unfortunately there does not exist a definitive list of Quantrill's Provisional Raiders and this arises largely from the fluid nature of this quasi-official Confederate Army unit. Over the four years of its existence they grew from being a small group of southern sympathizer bandits and enjoyed great notoriety that brought more and more of their ilk to join them. Many of them were killed, many split off to join other groups but more and more joined or affiliated with them from time to time so they were very fluid. Towards the end of their existence when Union Army pressure focused on bringing them to justice after the Lawrence Massacre they scattered to the winds and only small bands continued to be active. The following is a list compiled from many sources that includes members of Quantrill's Provisional Raiders and others who joined them from time to time. Those who know of additional Raider members and wish to share them with us may do so by e-mailing Family Chronicle staffer Ron Wild and putting Quantrill in the subject line.
