On the night of July 2, 1863,
Confederate Gen. John Hunt Morgan crossed the
Cumberland River at Burkesville, Kentucky with 2,500
troops and headed north on his GREAT RAID INTO
INDIANA AND OHIO. Exceeding his commander Braxton
Bragg’s order, Morgan planned to take Louisville,
cross the Ohio River, and take the war into Northern
territory. Some historians think Morgan’s ultimate
goal was to link up with Lee’s army in Pennsylvania.
