The Final Insult

On July 13, 1863, General Morgan's raiders looted a tavern in this Community. The Irish-born and agitated proprietor, James Murtaugh, protested, but without any luck. The tavern was an Inn with a dance hall on the second floor, which could be reached with a hand-operated elevator. The building is still standing, the second building north of this intersection on the east side of SR 1.

Despite their exhaustion, the Raiders' mischievous spirit was evident. Long bolts of stolen cloth unfurled from behind their saddles as they rode out of town.

Just 4/10 of a mile south of this point (on SR 1), is the Huber-Briggs Cemetery where a young man named Glardon is laid to rest. His funeral occurred as Morgan's men passed along the road east of Dover (now North Dearborn Road). The two fine horses used to pull the hearse became the property of Morgan's Raiders.
