Brigadier General E. B. Brown to Major O. D. Greene
WARRENSBURG, May 16, 1864.
Maj. O. D. GREENE,
Assistant Adjutant-General, Saint Louis:
Corporal Fore, Company F, First Missouri State Militia, with a small escort, killed one bushwhacker and wounded another, capturing both of their horses, yesterday near the line of Jackson County. Papers on the man killed were invoices from Capt. W. H. Wooten, assistant quartermaster to Col. W. C. Quantrill. The man answers the description of Quantrill. I have no doubt but he is the noted chief of guerrillas. He fought with his bowie-knife after being brought down by a pistol-shot. I have sent for more definite information.
E. B. BROWN,
Brigadier-General Volunteers, Commanding.
