— The Battle for Kentucky October 8, 1862 —Their faces and hands begrimed from the smoke of battle, and their ears ringing with the constant ripping of musketry, Starkweather's shattered brigade retreated to the ridge in front of you. They had saved several cannon, pushing them back to a new position. Most of the Union infantry took cover behind a stone wall that ran across part of the hill. Perryville's rolling terrain allowed the Federals to establish another defensive position on high ground.
