ELITE 174: AMERICAN CIVIL WAR GUERILLA TACTICS

Details

While the giant armies of the Union and the Confederacy were fighting over cities and strategic strongholds a large number of warriors from both sides were fighting smaller more personal battles. Beginning with the violent struggle known as Bleeding Kansas armed bands of irregular fighters began to wage war in every corner of the United States. Many of the names of their commanders have become legendary: William Quantrill Bloody Bill Anderson and John S Mosby - The Grey Ghost. To their own people they were heroes to others they were the first of a new generation of wild-west outlaw. Their tactics included robbing banks kidnapping soldiers & civilians rustling cattle and cutting telegraph lines. In fact it is during the violence of the war that many of America's future outlaw legends would be born most notably Cole Younger and Frank and Jesse James.
