    No he wasn't but he's a decent portrayal of the countless men who for one reason or another, good or bad, took up arms against each other in various guerrilla bands across the Ozark mountains of Arkansas and Missouri.
    At least in the beginning of the movie. Many didn't make it through the war or much long after. Neither William Quantrill or Bloody Bill Anderson survived the war. Despite a few western movies and TV shows to the contrary.
