I am looking for "any" info on "Charlie;s Raiders"..
The leader suposedly was my great, great, great, Grandfather, "Charles Joseph Savage" Born in the state of Ohio in 1820, migrated to Missouri, Pettis County around 1850.- 60
I have been told that during the Cilil War, he was the leader of a band of raiders, an offshoot of Quantrils Raiders, and suposedly was killed in a barn, along with his men.
I don't have dates or even places as no one can seem to verify that this is even a true storie, but since it was told from my Grandmothers, Brother's family, I have no reason to disbelive them. ...does any one have any information that "might" lead to more on this storie?
