This month is the 150th anniversary of the First Battle of Cynthiana, fought on July 17, 1862.
On July 4, 1862, Morgan began the First Kentucky Raid in Knoxville, moved his column through Tompkinsville, Glasgow and Lebanon, finally entering the Bluegrass in mid-July. Morgan’s assignment by Brigadier General Braxton Bragg was to lay the groundwork for a later Confederate invasion to occupy Central Kentucky by disrupting Federal use of railroads, communications, and military supplies.
