Moonlit Mayhem, is the story of Quantrill’s Raid on Olathe, Kansas, but it is much more than that. In addition to many details about the city of Olathe in 1862, the book contains over 100 color maps and images to help the reader understand what life was like for the residents in Missouri and Kansas during the Border war.

Reviews on book sites are much appreciated as those are a significant driver of Amazon’s search algorithms. I’d also love to hear any comments

you have about the book, feel free to send those to me at or post directly on my Jonathan Jones History Facebook page. Enjoy.
