Event Details

When we hear the name John H. Morgan, it usually brings to mind the dashing leader of a small band of gallant raiders, but by 1864 Morgan was a shell of his former self, and his command was no longer the gallant band of 1862 and 1863. This talk is about Morgan’s Last Raid, with a focus on the fighting at Cynthiana, but will also provide a few insights to Morgan’s lack of control and discipline during this campaign.
