PERRYVILLE, Ky., via BARDSTOWN, Oct. 10, 1862. To Maj-Gen. Hallack, General-in-Chief:

I have already advised you of the movements of the army under my command from Louisville. More or less skirmishing has occurred daily with the enemy’s cavalry. Since then it was supposed the enemy would give battle at Bardstown. My troops reached that point on the 4th inst., driving out the enemy’s rear guard of cavalry and artillery. The main body retired toward Springfield, whither the pursuit was continued.

The centre corps, under Gen. GILBERT, moved on the direct road from Springfield to Perryville, and arrived on the 7th instant within two miles of the town, where the enemy was found to be Read more…

History :

Finding a suitable site alongside the Chaplin River, the settlers built a fort next to a spring and cave.

When troubles with local Indians arose, they would flee across the water and into the cave to seek shelter from attack. The cave, which can still be viewed today, formed the settlers’ first line of defense. One day James Harbeson failed to reach the mouth of the cave in time. Local legend holds that Harbeson disappeared. His head, however, Read more…

LEXINGTON, Ky. — There are two tea-party movements in America. One favors low taxes, small government and patriotic feeling. The other favors fine china, orange pekoe and cordial chitchat.

The two have coexisted uneasily since Dec. 16, 1773, when antitax demonstrators dumped 342 chests of quite drinkable tea into Boston Harbor. Lately, tea dumpers have touched off a raucous revival. But tea sippers, enjoying a genteel revival of their own, aren’t showing the dumpers much sympathy.

“I’m promoting tea parties — just not that kind of tea party,” says Bruce Richardson, who lives in Perryville, a village 45 miles southwest of here. For a living, he imports tea, publishes books about tea and teaches tea-brewing and tea-party proprieties.
