Coleman reports that he engineered Charles Quantrell’s escape from A military prison hospital where he supposedly died. He reports he sent a letter of introduction for Charles with him in order for Charles to have business contacts. Notes Lt, the 46th Arkansas contained men, from the Arkansas companies of Colemans’s original 4th Cavalry Missouri State Guard, and from his operations strictly as a Partisan. He reports having met with Charles Quantrell in 1878 and discussed Charles return to the US under his assumed name. Colonel Coleman appears to have been a very shady fellow, and hard to tell fact from Fiction.
