Inscription. A western branch of this vital Colonial Road passed close to this area on the original Animal Trace formed by migrating animals seeking salt deposits. It is the northernmost portion of the Warriors Path in Kentucky. It connects the Shawnee in the North with the Cherokee in the South. Revolutionary Soldiers on both sides used the Path. Daniel Boone's son, Isreal, lost his life here in Kentucky's last battle of the Revolution, 1782, at Blue Licks.
