After a quick tasty treat in Corbin, we headed out to the Battle of Barbourville. This was an earlier conflict before the Battle of Camp Wildcat, and considered the first Confederate Victory in Kentucky. The battle on September 19, 1861 threw a scare into Union commanders, who then rushed troops to Kentucky to try to repel the Confederate Offensive, which stopped at the Battle of Camp Wildcat in October. This is a notable battle due to the fact it was the first to claim lives from both sides of the Civil War, 1 pro Union and about 7 Confederates.
