Bloody Bill Anderson Mystery
I created this group for those interested in history to share information about the life and death of Bloody Bill Anderson and to help solve the mystery of whether or not the real Bloody Bill Anderson was killed in Missouri in October of 1864, by Union soldiers, or if he actually escaped to live out his life in Salt Creek in Brown County, Texas. Colonel William C. Anderson of Brown County admitted, in 1924, that he was in fact the real Bloody Bill Anderson of Quantrill's Guerrillas fame. I chose to start this group because it offers a way for us to share information, photographs, and links to online sources of data we can use to help us in our search for the truth. We can use the message board to ask questions and to post messages containing material we want to share with each other. Since this group was established in April of 2006, dozens of our members have provided evidence that historically proves that Colonel William C. Anderson of Brown County was Bloody Bill Anderson. We also provide a lot of information about the secret national organization - the Knights of the Golden Circle.
