|The L&N R.R. bridge near here, a main USA supply line between Louisville and Bowling Green was
destroyed by Confederate troops in late 1881. Before repairs were complete, Morgan's Raiders
burned it Dec. 5,1861. This act brought Morgan's daring to public eye. A year later Morgan again
burned the trestle and stockade taking 93 prisoner of 91st ILL Vol.
