John Hunt Morgan Heritage Trail

The 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.

The Raiders left at 4 p.m. in several directions with orders to converge at present-day St. Paul. Union General Edward H. Hobson and the pursuing Union Cavalry arrived Sunday evening, only four hours behind Morgan. That night the Union forces camped west of Versailles. (Note the Historical Markers on the courthouse lawn.)
