Tour: Civil War on the Kentucky River
The Kentucky River has a long and tumultuous history. The Shakers were just one group who relied on the river for their livelihood—a livelihood that was threatened during the Civil War.
The Shakers were pacifists, but the skirmishes, battles, and consequences of the Civil War affected their community just like many others in the South. Take a narrated journey along the Kentucky River to discover how troop movement impacted the accessibility of the river and how the Civil War affected the Shakers at Pleasant Hill.
