Matthew Hulbert penned an article in the New York Times Opinionator blog that highlights the life and death of Confederate guerrilla leader William T. Anderson, a.k.a. “Bloody Bill.” In the history of Civil War guerrilla warfare in the border state of Missouri, Bloody Bill Anderson is often overshadowed by his infamous superior William Quantrill, who is typically credited with masterminding the Lawrence Massacre of 1863. Matthew reveals the impact of Anderson’s bloody war path through Missouri after Quantrill’s band of guerrillas dissolved. See Matthew’s full article in the New York Times.
Matthew graduated with his MA in history from NC State in 2010. He is currently a doctoral candidate in history at the University of Georgia and the co-editor of the forthcoming book, The Civil War Guerrilla: Unfolding the Black Flag in History, Memory, and Myth.
