The scenes of the Quantrill's Raid on Lawrence, Kansas were filmed in Pattonsburg, Missouri.

Dec 17, 1999 · "Ride With the Devil" is the first Civil War film I can recall that is not told with the benefit of hindsight. It's about characters who don't know the North will win--and sometimes don't much seem to care. It's said that all politics are local; this movie argues that some wars are local, too. In Missouri, the only slave-holding state that sided with the Union, it tells the story of a small ...
