On August 29-30, 1862, the Confederate Army of Kentucky under the command of General Edmund Kirby Smith battled Union forces guarding the town of Richmond, Kentucky, led by Union General William Bull Nelson. In The Battle of Richmond, Kentucky, author Paul Rominger outlines not only the battle itself, but also the participants, methods, and equipment used in that war.
More than just an account of this one Kentucky engagement, this book presents what life was life for combatants throughout the Civil War, how it impacted the nearby communities of Richmond and Berea, and weather conditions in central Kentucky for the year.
Approximately 20,000 visitors come to Battlefield Park in Richmond each year to walk its hallowed grounds, visit the museum, or even participate in the annual battlefield re-enactment. The Battle of Richmond, Kentucky is the perfect souvenir for visitors to the area, and a wonderful educational resource about Kentucky’s role in the Civil War.
