Ya... Theres quite a few resources and such on Missouri Border War/Civil War and the James Gang. My Great Uncle is the Border War and James Younger Gang expert I'm the Civil War. But there is a Museum up in Kearney, MO that tells the tale of the James - Younger Gang.

I think I know what book your reading... But I believe he stayed on the farm then was harrassed so much he join the Missouri State Guard under Sterling Price and then later joined Quantrill Raiders...

Unfortunately I won't be able to talk much this weekend I got my Senior Prom and a Reenactment in Olathe, KS.

But I say if you have time Richards go around and visit Kearney and Liberty.. I know that James Country spealizes in Border War books... But I think the store is closed in ya...

Long Live Missouri!
