Morgan's Great Raid: The Remarkable Expedition from Kentucky to Ohio.
Saturday, June 15, 10:30 a.m.
This program details a miltary feat that happened 150 years ago in our own backyard! Confederate General John Hunt Morgan led a raid behind enemy lines into the Union states of Indiana and Ohio, and his troops covered over 1,000 miles. Today this event is known as one of the most remarkable raids in American History. Mowery has lived near the route Morgan's army took almost all his life, and this insight brings special understanding to his new book that he will be discussing at the library. He wil also be selling and signing copies of his book!
