After a long and difficult struggle to get Captain William Clarke Quantrill's remains back to Missouri from Kansans hands, it was on October 24, 1992, that Captain Quantrill's mortal remains were reinterred in the Old Confederate Veterans Home Cemetery with full Confederate honors due him by the Missouri Division of the Sons Of Confederate Veterans.

Many people were in attendance this day in October, 1992. A crowd of well over 700 people had gathered to be part of the honorary and historic event.

Included in the those attending the ceremony were Judge James R. Ross from Fullerton California, who is Jesse Woodson James great grandson!

A welcome was given by SCV Commander In Chief Robert L. Hawkins III. A scripture reading and homily was delivered by Father Hugh Beahan.

Then a most stirring solo rendition of "Hallowed Ground" was given by James "Chis" Edwards. A eulogy was then given by Mr. Bob Hawkins, and then all present sang "What A Friend We Have In Jesus."

With an honor guard provided by the 5th Missouri Infantry, CSA, complete with musket volley salute, Captain Quantrill was then laid to rest for eternity.

God Bless you Captain Quantrill. Rest in peace...
