1 Legacy Response to Harrison: Dedication of the John Hunt Morgan Heritage Trail

  1. I followed the John Hunt Morgan Trail through Kentucky, Indiana and Ohio in 2009 on a motorcycle. I’m planning on doing it again this year for the 150th, and will plan to be in Harrison on the 13th for the festivities. I live in South Lebanon, OH.
