The Hunt House will be open to visitors from 1:00 to 4:00 pm on July 15, 2017.
We are pleased to present Mr. Chris Burns, Civil War Historian, former Adjunct Professor of History at Northern Kentucky University.
He will speak on The Siege of Cincinnati, 1862. In 1862, the Siege of Cincinnati was a major event that helped define the resolve of the people in this region. Cincinnati was under assault from an enemy whose goal was to pillage and burn the city, leaving only destruction and fear in their wake. Over 60,000 volunteers poured into the city from five states to stop a Confederate onslaught that ripped through Kentucky virtually unchallenged, before turning north to threaten the Queen City. This is their story of patriotism, selflessness and courage.
Presentation begins at 1:30 p.m. (approximately one-half hour duration)
