Saturday Dudeboy and I took full advantage of the wonderful weather to hightail it up to Morgantown in Butler County to visit a couple of the tourist sites located in that vicinity. Well, actually I doubt these places get many visitations and the weather for the day was fairly suspect. Regardless, we made the best of it and had a grand time.
this link to see a turn of the century photo of the same spot . . . which is today situated on private property away from the current Logansport Road and is now all but a forgotten old roadbed in some woods.
marker along the current Logansport Road states:
First Union soldier killed in west Kentucky, while skirmishing on the Big Hill with CSA scouting party Oct. 29, 1861. A stone monument erected, 1894, by Granville Allen, Post 98, G.A.R., marks the place. Member of Co. D, 17th Kentucky Inf., enrolled by Col. John H. McHenry, Calhoun, Oct. 3, 1861. Union army volunteers south of Green River risked danger for home and family.
It is situated high in a cliff with commanding views of the Green River.
