Battle of Leatherwood expands
History is always more interesting when you get to experience it.
And folks with the Battle of Leatherwood will now be able to enhance your experience.
According to WYMT-TV Doctor Marion Miniard, who originally donated the land used for the Civil War re-enactment, recently donated a second piece of land to use for the event.
The land will allow the committee to expand their structures and continue to bring history alive for folks in Eastern Kentucky.
“We’re one of the few sites that’s on an original battlefield and Doctor Miniard donated the reminder of the property so that there’s no question in title,” Battle of Leatherwood Reenactment Committee President Kerry Crutcher said.
This year’s Battle of Leatherwood Re-enactment will be held October 25-27.
