Missouri bushwhacker chieftain William Clark Quantrill and his bloody August 1863 attack on Lawrence have inspired many filmmakers. In this course, we will thoroughly examine the man and the raid, including its causes and aftermath, while viewing the ways cinema has portrayed the event. We will view clips of the 1940 John Wayne movie "Dark Command," as well as shorter segments from films like the 1950 Universal picture "Kansas Raiders." We will then contrast them with the 2009 Lone Chimney documentary "Bloody Dawn" and the most realistic Hollywood Quantrill movie, Ang Lee's 1999 "Ride with the Devil."
