According to the Introduction by John P. Burch, Captain Harrison Trow was with Quantrill during the whole of the conflict from 1861-1865. Burch finally gained Trow's consent to write a "true history" of the Quantrill Band. He says that "this narrative was written just as [Trow] told it to me." Supposedly the James brothers and the Youngers were members of the Quantrill Raiders. According to Burch, Captain Harrison Trow identified Jesse James when he was killed in St. Joseph. Trow was also the last man to surrender in Missouri. [see more in THE READER'S ENCYCLOPEDIA OF THE AMERICAN WEST by Howard R. Lamar] Six-Guns 323. Bookseller Inventory # 006497
