This image was taken by E.A. Baldwin June 5 1863. This is John Noland. Gus Myers spoke highly of this black man in notes in his journal. He is wearing a Confederate raider hat. He was Quantrill’s personal scout and spy. He later attended many of the Quantrill Reunions and was very highly respected.
All of his pall bearers were former Quantrill guerrillas, white men who loved him. Harry Truman may have known this man as he himself attended many Quantrill reunions.
