QUANTRILL'S RAIDERS LEADER CAPTURED & KILLED! CIVIL WAR! SPENCER COUNTY, KY! HISTORY & ANCESTRY
We teamed up with Mr. Davis Downs, a lifelong Spencer County, Kentucky resident whose family has owned a farm less than two miles from where Confederate Guerilla Captain William Quantrill was captured. Quantrill was shot in the back in the action and died a few weeks later in a Louisville, Kentucky hospital. Quantrill’s Raiders terrorized communities during the Civil War making him a hero to some and a villain to others. We tell his story, including the detailed events of his capture in this video!
