|July 14, 2013|
To commemorate Confederate General John Hunt Morgan’s thirteen day raid of Ohio, and the role of the Union pursuers, in the historic clash 150 years ago this July, the Clermont County Civil War Commemoration Committee (CCCWCC) is sponsoring an educational bus tour of Morgan’s Trail through Clermont County from Miamiville, where Morgan entered the county, to Williamsburg, on Sunday July 14, 2013. Historian Rick Crawford will moderate the tour, describing the events of the raid and other county historical stories.
The bus tour will depart Miamiville at 1pm. Before the bus tour departs, the two interpretive signs in Miamiville can be viewed. The bus will arrive in Williamsburg in time to attend the dedication and unveiling of the interpretive sign in the village. Following the dedication, the bus will proceed to a reception program at Harmony Hill where refreshments will be served. The Harmony Hill Association and Clermont County Historical Society’s museums will be open. Following the reception, the bus will return to Miamiville by a different route over a trail that other Morgan’s Raiders took.
The cost of the tour is $10.00 and is limited to the first 52 people who make reservations by calling Terri Daugherty at (513) 734-7049. Reservations will only be confirmed after Terri receives your check (sorry, no credit cards.) Mail to her must be received by Monday, July 7. Send check made out to CCCWCC, 2010 Bethel Maple Road, Hamersville, OH 45130.
The tour bus can either be boarded in Miamiville at 1pm (location yet to be announced) or at the Croswell Bus Station in Williamsburg at 11:30 am, located at the intersection of SR133 and SR276.
