Books: Guerilla Warfare in Civil War Kentucky, Joseph-Beth
March 14, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Kentucky author Gerald Fischer discusses and signs Guerrilla Warfare in Civil War Kentucky at Joseph-Beth at 2 pm on March 14.
“Usually when people think about “guerrilla activity” during the Civil War, the border conflicts between Kansas and Missouri come to mind. However, guerrilla forces roamed throughout the border states and beyond throughout the entire war. This is especially true for the “Heartland of Kentucky”, roughly defined by the Pennyroyal and Bluegrass regions in the central/west-central areas of the state. This book explores the real guerrilla fighters of the region, their exploits and their eventual demise, along with some of the infamous lawmen and soldiers assigned to bring them to justice.”
