My illness has gone worse over the last months. Thus, I´m unable to continue in
bringing out our camp newsletter. The last issue was planned for June 1, but
didn´t become real. Sorry.
With deepest regret I must say goodbye to active work in our Camp. I very much
hope someone will take over as editor and continue the work of the ISE, which
used to be the Camp´s very soul.
Your obedient servant,
"We must think historically that the South, with all her inherited institutions
and her embracing of religious and ethical values, was a continuation of the
finest gifts and practices of European culture."

150th anniversary of the death
of William Clarke Quantrill
Hello John, I feel like I know you due to your connections to Raphael.
I am sending a photo that he has already sent to you with
a brief description of my visit to Quantrill's grave.
I was reminded by SCV Commander Scott Morris that
Saturday, June 6th, 2015, would be the 150th anniversary
of William Clarke Quantrill's death in my hometown of Louisville,
Since several of us had arranged for Quantrill to
finally have a marker at his first burial site, I knew about
the cemetery, St. Johns Catholic Cemetery located
at 26th and Duncan Streets in the western part of the city.
A festival was planned for that part of town and I was concerned
about parking, but that was no problem at all.
Two workmen were at the cemetery when I arrived as they
had completed cutting half of the cemetery and were leaving.
My timing was very good as due to the low level of Quantrill's
marker and the heavy growth of grass, I had a time even
locating it. Just in time, I found it and asked one of the workmen
to weed eat around the marker. That really was helpful.
I placed a bouquet of white artificial flowers above his grave
and asked Louisvillians on my list to visit the gravesite as it would be
easy to find with my flowers being the only grave decorated
as far as I could tell. Very few locals even know Quantrill died
and was buried here for many years. His remains are today
marked in three different locations!
All the best,
Saturday, June 6, 2015 will be the 150th
anniversary of the death of William Clarke Quantrill (born in Canal Dover July
31, 1837). Quantrill was mortally wounded May 10, 1865 at the James Wakefield
farm south of Louisville, KY by federal troops, dying 28 days later in
Louisville. He was 27 years old.
William Quantrill is one of the most maligned figures of the American Civil War.
Unfortunately for Dover and American history in general, most of what we are
told, what we read and see in movies paint Quantrill and the men who rode with
him as villains and cold-blooded killers. Most of these stories and descriptions
have come from yellow-journalism of the period and a published history filtered
through a northern bias after the war.
Quantrill was no saint, but to be fair and truthful, neither was W.T. Sherman (Lancaster,
Ohio) or G.A. Custer (New Rumley, Ohio). Yet these Ohioans born near Dover are
portrayed as war heroes. Historians have overlooked the atrocities committed
under their command primarily because their side won the war, while exploiting
opinion based stories and creating a hyperbole history about the Dover native
too many believe as true.
Author Dan Brown (The Da Vinci Code) has a poignant perspective of history when
it comes to what we believe we are told about Quantrill, Sherman and others,
“History is always written by the winners. When two cultures clash, the loser is
obliterated, and the winner writes the history books-books which glorify their
own cause and disparage the conquered foe. As Napoleon once said, 'What is
history, but a fable agreed upon?”
Let's be fair when it comes to the history of Dover native W.C. Quantrill. We
can learn so much more of this young man through better researched books such as
those of author Paul Peteresen, and first person stories related through authors
Samuel Anderson Pence, and O. S. Barton.
Today William's mortal remains are interred at the 4th Street Cemetery at Dover,
Ohio, and the Old Confederate Veterans Home and Confederate Cemetery at
Higginsville, Missouri, and the old Portland Catholic Cemetery in Louisville,

Sons of Confederate Veterans
Hello Nancy and friends,
On May 9, 2015, the day before the Wakefield farm ambush that mortally wounded
WCQ and fatally took the lives of Richard Glasscock and Clark Hockensmith, my
Sons of Confederate Veterans camp, Quantrill's Raiders Camp 2087, held a
memorial at Quantrill's grave in his hometown of Dover, Ohio. I read several
versions of the ambush, including that of the distinguished author Paul R.
Petersen (Quantrill of Missouri).
Here is a photo of William Quantrill's grave at the 4th Street Cemetery at Dover,
Ohio. Camp member Vince Silvestro is designated as the National Guardian of
Colonel Quantrill's grave in Ohio. The week before our memorial, Vince added
detail painting of the Southern Cross of Honor.
Riding Toward the Enemy with Colonel Quantrill!
