I saw it, but it was when it was still in theaters, so I probably don't remember well enough to answer.  I'll try, though!

Did they say anything about Cogburn riding with Quantrill?

I need to find out.  In the first one, he did.  Sad  If he does in the 2nd one, I may not buy it.  Sad

bottom of quantrill's wikipedia article:

"In the novel True Grit by Charles Portis, and the 1969 and 2010 film versions thereof, Rooster Cogburn boasts of being a former member of Quantrill's Raiders, and LaBoeuf excoriates him for being part of the "border gang" that murdered men, women, and children alike during the raid on Lawrence, Kansas."

BOOO!

 Sad

This makes me sad.  I have LOVED Rooster Cogburn since I was a child, and now I find out he's a border ruffian? 

*sigh*

Memory of Quantrill's Raid is alive and well in my neck of the woods.  The building I used to work in was one of just a handful that actually survived the raid.  Townies can point out the house that sat next to the ditch where one of the ruffian's bodies laid for days because nobody gave a crap that he was dead- they were too busy dealing with their own dead and wounded. 

The town of Osceola, MO recently (like- a month and a half ago) condemned KU's use of the Jayhawk mascot, because it glorified a raid that eventually led to Quantrill's raid.

Bleeding Kansas didn't end.  It's just in intermission.
