The Story of Cole Younger (Civil War Classics)

From Decorated Soldier to Notorious Outlaw

To commemorate the 150th Anniversary of the end of the Civil War, Diversion Books is publishing seminal works of the era: stories told by the men and women who led, who fought, and who lived in an America that had come apart at the seams.

When the Great War ended, his violent life began. Cole Younger served as a captain in the Confederate Army, overseeing some of the bloodiest battles in the guerilla warfare that bloodied Missouri. But it was after the Civil War when Younger joined in with a group of outlaws, including Jesse James, and set about robbing banks and stagecoaches. Here, he sets his extraordinary story down, the tale of a war and all the battles that followed.
