—John Hunt Morgan Heritage Trail —At 2am on July 14, 1863, the sound of hooves on Sharon Avenue's cobblestones interrupted the dark morning stillness. While many townspeople slept, those awakened were terrified by what they saw. Peering from their Glendale College dorm windows, some curious girls saw the eerie outlines of "ghost riders" moving eastward and scurried back to hide under their bedcovers. No one realized that the ghosts were Morgan's Raiders wearing stolen veils to protect them from the dust.
