Morgan's Raid - Jefferson County, Ohio Historical Markers

In 1913, the citizens of Jefferson County erected 14 bronze tablets to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Confederate Gen. John Hunt Morgan's passage through that eastern-Ohio county on the last two days of his ill-fated Indiana-Ohio cavalry raid. Of the fourteen markers, one tablet was stolen in 2008 (#6) and another (#13) has been missing -- concrete base included -- for decades.
