The Battle of Perryville
Perryville, KY
October 6 - 8, 2006

After Sunday's fight and returning to our temporary base in Louisville, we took some time to visit the humble origins of our 16th President. Ironically, Abraham Lincoln's Birthplace and his boyhood home at Knob Creek are both very close to Perryville itself. Paying homage to the Commander of the Union Armies certainly served as penance for this wayward Yankee.
