Civil War Figure. He was the jailer in Lawrence, Kansas when the guerrilla forces of William Quantrill's raided the town and massacred many of the inhabitants. During the raid, he locked himself in the jail for safety, with Quantrill's men threatened to burn down the jail if he didn't come out. The guerrillas failed to come through with their threat, and the jail and Martin Wood survived. (bio by: Bill Walker)
