William T. "Bloody Bill" Anderson (1839 – 1864) was one of the deadliest and most brutal pro-Confederate guerrilla leaders in the American Civil War. Anderson led a band that targeted Union loyalists and Federal soldiers in Missouri and Kansas. In this badly preserved photo, Anderson lies dead after shooting it out with a Union Army detachment lead by Lt Col Samuel P. Cox near Richmond, Missouri. Historian James Reid posits that Anderson suffered from sadistic personality disorder.
