John Hunt Morgan Heritage TrailThe Morgan Raiders arrived in Versailles at 1 p.m., Sunday, July 12, 1863, and proceeded to rob the county treasury and to obtain fresh horses. The Raiders also captured and paroled 300 local men, who had assembled in hopes of defending Versailles. One of Morgan's men robbed the local Masonic Lodge of its jewelry. Morgan, a staunch Mason, ordered the items returned and the thief reprimanded.
