An SNN reader recently went to Jefferson County, Ohio, the site of a famous Confederate raid back in 1863. He visited a cemetery with some Confederate graves and wanted to share the pictures with our readers. It is certainly nice to see our people remembered and our flags and other symbols there honouring those who died fighting for Southern independence.
Confederate General John Hunt Morgan came through Jefferson County in July 1863. He had a skirmish with some Yankees in the Northwest part of the county on July 26, 1863. Right below the cemetery is where these two men were killed and then brought up the hill to be buried. One man is named John Miller and the other was a mere boy as the pictures state. They were part of Company E 2 KY Cavalry.
