LCWRT Participates at the Simpsonville Massacre Dedication

We have more from the April 10, 2011, the Shelby County Historical Society dedication.  This is the completed memorial to the 22 USCC soldiers killed by Confederate guerrillas near Simpsonville, Ky in Jan. 1865. As a  recipient of the LCWRT 2009 Preservation Grant, we were happy to participate on the ceremony. The memorial, on U.S. 60 west of Simpsonville, features 22 memorial headstones, a dry stone sitting wall, flag pole and a historical marker.
