Excerpt from Noted Guerrillas, or the Warfare of the Border: Being a History of the Lives and Adventures of Quantrell, Bill Anderson, George Todd, Dave Poole, Fletcher Taylor, Peyton Long, Oll Shepherd, Arch Clements, John Maupin, Tuck and Woot Hill, Wm; Gregg, Thomas Maupin, the James Brothers It is not easy to analyze this species Of murder, all the more certain because Of its calculation. The time to refuse quarter is in actual conżict. Conscience then - a sleepy thing in civil war at best - is rarely aroused in time to become aggressive. Through the smoke and the dust it is diżicult to see the white, set face and the haunting eyes of the early doomed. In the rain of the riże-balls, what matters the patter of a prayer or two? Discrimination and desperation are not apt to ride in the same squadrons together, and yet the Guerrilla, with a full revolver, has been known to take possession of his victim and spare him afterwards. Something, no matter what - some memory of other days, some wayward freak, some passing fancy, some gentle mood, some tender inżuence in earth, or air, or sky - made him merciful when he meant to be a murderer. The warfare of the Guerrilla was the warfare of the fox joined to that of the lion. He crept from the rear, and he dashed from the front. If the ambuscade hid him, as at Lone Jack, the noonday sun shone down full upon the Open prairie slaughter of Centralia. In either extreme there was extermination. Death. Made familiar by association, merged its constraint into com radeship, and hid at the bivouac at night the sword-blade that was to be so fatal in the morning. Hence all the roystering in the face of the inevitable - all that recklessness and boisterous ness which came Often to its last horse, saddle and bridle, but never to its last gallop or stratagem.
