Josey Wales- aka as “Bill” Wilson


The Outlaw Josey Wales
From: Civil War FB page
There is usually a grain of truth to most legends and so it is with Josey Wales. More than a grain in this case, however...more like a whole bushel basket!
Josey Wales was based on a real man and one that was reputedly as tough, violent and vengeful as Wales. But, unlike the movie, the real man did not have as his driving force a vengeance for a family murdered by Yankee soldiers. But his family was rousted from their house and their homestead burned to the ground by Yankee troops.
The "real Josey Wales" was a Confederate guerilla fighter, a “bushwacker,” an associate of Quantrill's Raiders, deadly shot, and killer of many. He was born William “Bill” Wilson (pictured below) in the Ozarks Mountains of Missouri of a well-to-do family. He grew into a very tall, dark and handsome man - 6’2”, with jet black curly hair and sparkling crystal blue eyes. He was an amiable fellow, good-natured, clever, and skilled at playing the violin, so he was always in demand for weddings and parties.
His nimble fingers were not only quick on the fiddle, however. They were quick on the trigger as well. He was a deadly shot and always had on both hips two .44-calibre six shooters. He was a sure-shot at a stand-still but also practiced assiduously shooting on the run from the back of his horse.
Bill’s father was a prosperous farmer who had made pains to remain neutral in the violently split border state of Missouri. He had owned several slaves, but freed them before the War and advised his grown children to remain as neutral as possible. But, in the summer of 1861, just after the War had started, some horses were stolen from the Yankee forces in the area, allegedly by Confederate guerillas. Bill Wilson was immediately regarded as a suspect. A few days later, a group of Yankee solders raided his home, threw out his family, stole everything they could and set the entire homestead on fire. That was the end of Bill’s “neutrality.”
He moved his family to a small cabin on his parents’ farm and began a campaign of blood vengeance that would become legend in the Ozark Mountains, then the entire country.
Bodies of Yankee soldiers started showing up everywhere. The first victims were the four Yankees who had raided his farm. He hid in the trees by the trail leading back to the Yankee army headquarters at Rolla, Missouri, and waited for the soldiers. With both of his revolvers drawn, he surprised them on the road and killed all four.
Killing Yankees had a side benefit: Bill confiscated their Army mounts and supplied Quantrill's Raiders with mounts for their many raids. Bill Wilson became known as “The Great Bushwacker” because he ambushed his many victims. The number of Yankees that Wilson killed is unknown - according to the legend, possibly dozens.
When the War ended, there was a $300 bounty on him, an immense amount at that time. He rode to Texas with as many as 150 other Quantrill Raiders to hide out. Some brokered pardons with the U.S. government, but Bill Wilson never did. He continued to make trips back to Missouri to visit his family and was welcomed by the Ozark mountain people as a folk hero.
Bill Wilson lived near Sherman, Texas, and married an Indian woman named Mary Ann Noaks in April, 1865. Later, about 1869, he was selling a wagon load of apples in McKinney, Texas, when two men spied him. They decided to rob him and ambushed him north of the small frontier town of Van Alstyne, shot him many times to ensure that he was dead, robbed him and buried him in a shallow grave. The two desperadoes were later caught, confessed and were hanged in Sherman on March 26, 1869. But Bill’s grave was never found.
For about 60 years, Bill Wilson’s legend continued to survive in the South. Then one of his descendants, George Clinton Arthur, wrote a biography about Wilson in 1938: “Bushwacker: Missouri’s Most Infamous Desperado.”
It would be another 30 years before another book would be written about Bill Wilson and this one would lead to the famous movie. In 1972, author Forrest Carter wrote “The Rebel Outlaw: Josey Wales.” Carter sent the book to Clint Eastwood’s office as an unsolicited submission. Eastwood’s partner read it and suggested buying the rights. (The same book was later re-released by the publisher with a new name, "Gone to Texas," and that is the title that is credited in the movie credits).
“The Outlaw Josey Wales,” was released in 1976. The film was a great commercial and artistic success and has become a cult classic. In 1996, the film was selected for preservation in the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress for being deemed "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.”
The movie portrays Native Americans and especially an old Cherokee man as very sympathetically and fellow renegades and free spirits, like Wales.
The last scene of “The Outlaw Josey Wales,” has a sweet resonance and resolution - and a little inside joke for history lovers who know the real story behind the legend. When the men who have been hunting Wales.finally think they have found him in a bar in Santa Rio, TX, a prostitute and other locals cover for the outlaw, saying that Wales was killed in a shoot-out in Monterrey, Mexico. They vouch for Josey, saying that he is a local. As he enters the saloon, one of them greets him, saying: “Mr. Wilson...”
And now you know...the rest of the story...thanks to Glen Hunter

And a little about Babette-

"Dark-haired, diminutive Susan Silo -- 5' 3" and 105 pounds -- has had a multifaceted career. She began as a teenage recording artist in the late 1950s and early 1960s. In the decades that followed, she grew into a stage, screen and television actress, eventually establishing herself as a voice artist in movies and television. Born in New York City in 1942 to a family of theatrical performers, she made her professional debut at age 4 and worked steadily on radio, television and the stage during her pre-teen years. She attended Performing Arts High School of Music And Art (now the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis High School) in NYC. At age 15, she took over the role of Rosalita in the Broadway production of West Side Story. At the end of the 1950s, she moved to California to pursue opportunities on the small screen.
Silo's television career began with appearances in episodes of The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis, Sea Hunt, The Ann Sothern Show, Ripcord, and Alfred Hitchcock Presents. Her short stature and youth made her an ideal portrayer of wholesome American teenagers, while her dark good looks allowed her to take on more exotic roles as well. She also revealed a natural flair for comedy that manifested itself on series such as Burke's Law and McHale's Navy. The latter show paired her with Tim Conway in an extended physical comedy sequence involving a runaway PT boat that was almost worthy of Buster Keaton and Marion Mack in The General (1927). And it led to her big-screen debut, also paired with Conway, in McHale's Navy Joins the Air Force (1965).
