Gray Ghosts of the Confederacy: Guerrilla Warfare in the West, 1861-1865
The establishment of a police state in Missouri and the subsequent backlash and ensuing war of sabotage by local guerrillas. Missouri and Kansas had shared much animosity in the years leading up to the Civil War

In a supposed retaliation for a Union raid on Osceola, Missouri, Lieutenant Colonel William C. Quantrill led a force of about 300 to 400 partisans in an attack on the city of Lawrence, Kansas.

His men killed civilians�men and boys�and destroyed many of the buildings.

He held the town several hours and then withdrew.

The "Lawrence Massacre" was, perhaps, the extreme example of the vicious Kansas-Missouri border warfare.
