Welcome Quantrill Historians

       2013 was a  great year for the Emory Cantey, Jr. Collection/ August Myers Collection website. All images from the Gus Myers Collection have been added. Many images and artifacts from the combined Emory Cantey, Jr. Collection have also been added, including acquisitions from the Wilbur Zink Collection and other high end auctions. I have been able to supply several Missouri families with copies (Not Originals) of my images of their beloved relatives they never had before. I have provided copies free to relatives who can prove their ancestry. Visits to the website have been sensational.

2014: Very soon a new section will be opened containing well made historical videos for my visitors to enjoy. They will also be released to Youtube. Keep looking for when that section appears above. 

Please also see the biography section which I have recently updated with new information revealed by the Myers family, the name that Gus Myers changed his name to that lasts to this day, and information about Gus Myers' son as a collector himself. 



This collection is the culmination of my collector's dreams. Every collector or historian hopes that they will find something that will be a real treasure; something of significant value to the subject matter that they have spent years pursuing. For me my purchase of  the August Myers collection was far more than I had ever hoped to find. Like so many opportunities, this came as a complete surprise as I essentially stumbled on the collection while pursuing something else. Please continue to the biography and documentation sections above for full descriptions of what I believe to be a fascinating story of how this collection came to be accumulated and the Quantrill guerrilla who was Quantrill's archivist. Prior to this website, these images were never seen by the public in nearly 150 years.

"Quantrill and his men have been unjustly slandered by the people of the North, a people who,even to this day, know nothing of them, except what they have read in irresponsible books and newspapers."

"It is not enough that their valor is recognized. It is not enough that their honesty be confessed. We ask of our Northern brother, we ask of all mankind and all womankind a recognition of their patriotism, their love of country, and of liberty...We cannot remain silent, so long as any aspersion is cast by the pen of the historian, or the tongue of the orator upon their patriotic motives, or the loftiness of their purposes throughout that mighty struggle. We make no half-hearted apologies for their acts. It is justice for which we plead, not charity."
Capt. William Gregg, Quantrill's adjutant, in a letter after the War    which webcounter is best
