Kentucky - Confederate Raids and Invasions, and a Federal Retreat Historical Markers

Between 1963 and 1965 the Kentucky Historical Society erected a number of historical markers with the same map on the reverse side titled “Confederate Raids and Invasions, and a Federal Retreat, in Kentucky.” The map was color-coded (the colors for the most part have worn off) showing the routes of Confederate raids and invasions and the Federal retreat. The front of the marker contained different markers and text.
