Authors Note:

 

This is a work of Non-fiction, based upon historical events. Except for certain historical figures which the readers may well identify; names, places, dates and incidents pivotal to the writing of this book have been researched by the author, Welby Thomas Cox, jr. and he takes full legal responsibility for the content of the book, rights and permissions. It would be purely a matter of coincidence if someone might be recognized as a character in The Wild Riders…First Kentucky Calvary.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT:

 

 

Perhaps few others are wholly original as far as their plots are concerned. Indeed, William Shakespeare seems to have created almost nothing original, while Chaucer seems to have borrowed from both the living and the dead. And to bring it down to a common interest, the present scribe is even more derivative, since, for this book he has tried in general to keep to authenticated notes and research, doggedly using recorded actions, dispatches, and letters and from memoirs and contemporaries. But general appropriation, is not quite the same thing as outright plagiary, and in passing it must be confessed, that several passages and descriptions have been taken from the text of authors listed herein, whose words did not seem capable of improvement.
