Hidden History of Kentucky Soldiers
Daniel Boone is celebrated as a Kentucky frontiersman, but what about his service in the French and Indian War? Custer's Last Stand in the Great Sioux War is legendary, but few remember Custer's "next-to-last stand" in Elizabethtown, where he was sent to suppress the Ku Klux Klan and hunt down moonshiners just before heading to the Montana Territory and into history. Join Kentucky historian Berry Craig as he unearths the forgotten heroics of Kentucky soldiers, beginning with the French and Indian War and ending with World War II. Featuring tales of warriors from a diverse range of backgrounds, Hidden History of Kentucky Soldiers honors generations of Kentuckians who put their lives on the line for their country. Book jacket.
