BGES Presents Chris Kolakowski’s Tour
Battle for the Bluegrass: The Perryville Campaign, A Sesquicentennial Reflection
September 19-22, 2012
Late breaking news. We’re please to report that Kent Masterson Brown will give the opening lecture at the Campbell House in LexingtonWhile all the attention in this sesquicentennial year is sure to go to Antietam, the Confederate move into Kentucky orchestrated by Braxton Bragg in cooperation with Kirby Smith compelled the Federals to retreat and respond to this miraculous transfer of Confederate troops from Tupelo, Mississippi via Mobile, Atlanta and Chattanooga into Kentucky. The culminating battle at Perryville marked Bragg as an ineffective officer and forecast future difficulties for this ill fated army. Led by Perryville expert and George Patton Museum Director, Chris Kolakowski you will also take in the battle of Mill Springs and Camp Wildcat. A fascinating trip that you won’t want to miss.
Limited to 20 people.
