and Burn the Bridge Behind Them

— John Hunt Morgan Heritage Trail —

During the afternoon of July 13, 1863, General John Hunt Morgan crossed the Whitewater River a few hundred yards north of this point. His exhausted men were strung out behind him, but managed to burn the wooden bridge once the straggling ranks were closed. They moved through West Harrison, Indiana, and into Ohio. Just as in Indiana, the Harrison, Ohio, stores were pillaged.

The advanced units of the Union cavalry reached this point one hour later, but were too exhausted to pursue further.
