— The Battle for Kentucky October 8, 1862 —As Union Colonel John Starkweather stood on this hill, watching Terrill's brigade retreat, he realized the importance of his position. With its twelve cannon, Starkweather's brigade stood as the only Federal defense between the attacking Confederates and the Union wagons that carried ammunition and medical supplies. As the survivors of Terrill's brigade and the 21st Wisconsin fled past their position, Starkweather's men held firm and awaited the Confederate attack.
