The Final Insult
—John Hunt Morgan Heritage Trail —
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.
