Quantrill Rangers & Ex Confederates
Mourning Cloth / Handkerchief
Funeral Of Jo Shelby

© MPR Virtual Museum Collection

Memorium Mourning cloth / handkerchief given by survivors of Quanrill's Rangers & Ex - Missouri Confederates at the funeral of Joseph Orville "Jo" Shelby on February 13, 1897.

The Missouri Partisan Ranger Museum acquired this fine example from the former extensive Richard Benton collection, which was revered and venerated by many as one of the purist Missouri Partisan Ranger collections in existence.

Remarkably, this is the only known specimen to exist! Needless to say, it is quite historic, rare and valuable.
