One of several partisan groups in
western VA during the Civil War,
the Moccasin Rangers were Southern
sympathizers who operated in the
central counties of present-day West Virginia,
conducting raids and terrorizing
local Unionists. After they looted
Ripley in 1861, two rangers were
convicted of robbing the mail. One
of the group's leaders was Perry
Conley, an associate of Nancy Hart.
