"Treat Them as Wild Beasts": Civil War Bandits and Guerillas in the Ohio Valley Region
After the fall of 1862 and the Battle of Perryville, most of the conventional fighting between large Union and Confederate armies took place beyond Kentucky's borders, and on the surface the commonwealth was controlled by Federal forces. But the Union army was never able to adequately occupy and protect the entire state, focusing its resources instead on key transportation arteries and garrison cities and towns. The remainder of Kentucky and Southern Indiana could be a chaotic and dangerous "no-man's-land" threatened by bandits and guerillas. This lecture explores some examples of wartime activities by these groups. Bring your own lunch, drinks are provided. Free, but registration required (812-944-7336). Sponsored by the Carnegie Center, Inc.
