John Hunt Morgan Heritage TrailAbout dusk on July 10, 1863, Brigadier General John Hunt Morgan and his men rode into Lexington, then the county seat of Scott County. The raiders had ridden approximately 45 miles since camping the previous night in the Palmyra area. Lexington was occupied without opposition. The county's three Home Guard companies had been ordered to Jeffersonville to protect the U.S. Government warehouses.
