Thanks for sharing the great pictures. The raid was another invasion of northern territory in 1863. Also, the raid provided the only "battles" or skirmishes in Indiana during the war as far as I know. To this day, the intense instate football rivals of Indiana University and Purdue University play for the Old Oaken Bucket traveling trophy. The Old Oaken Bucket was found on a southern Indiana farm. According to the people who owned it, Morgan's raiders drank water from it while in Indiana. Possibly even the General himself....
There are not too many members on this board that are very interested with John Hunt Morgan and his raids. I really enjoyed my studies and tours regarding his raids into the states of Kentucky, Indiana and Ohio.
