This area has remained basically unchanged since General John Hunt Morgan's 2,440 man Confederate Cavalry Division overwhelmed the Harrison County Home Guard on July 9th, 1863 in what was to become the longest cavalry raid of the Civil War. The entire raid covered more than one thousand miles beginning near Sparta, Tennessee and ending with General Morgan's surrender near New Lisbon, Ohio on July 26th, 1863. General Morgan's escape is another story.
