On August 11, 1862 Captain William C. Quantill captured Independence, Missouri. In this raid he captured a fine brown horse, which he gave the name of Charley, his own given name. He rode Charley thoroughout the war and legend has it, on the day he died, Charley was injured while being shod, and Quantrill said it was a bad omen.
