Saturday May 21st - 9:00 a.m.
Come spend a day at the most pristine battlefield in the United States! Hosts Chuck Lott and Darryl Smith will guide you on the battlefield of Perryville, fought in October, 1862, that concluded Braxton Bragg's Kentucky Campaign. Two sessions will cover most of the battle.
Starting at 9:00 a.m. we will cover Frank Cheatham's divisional attack against the mostly green Federals on the Union left flank, then break for lunch around noon. (bring your own as the area does not have any restaurants close by) Spend the afternoon walking the ground of Simon Buckner's and Patton Anderson's attacks against the heights held by such heroes as Leonard Harris and William Lytle.
There will be an evening gathering at a restaurant in Danville for those wanting to talk about the battle and Kentucky Campaign further.
