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 Braggís order, Morgan planned to take Louisville, cross the Ohio River, and take the war into Northern territory. Some historians think Morganís ultimate goal was to link up with Leeís army in Pennsylvania.
