During the Civil War, Confederate General John Hunt Morgan led a raid into southern Indiana, July 8-13, 1863. On July 11, he demanded the surrender of Vernon. Colonel Hugh T. Williams, Indiana Legion, replied that Morgan "must take it by hard fighting." No major battle occurred, and Morgan's cavalry withdrew toward Dupont, Jefferson County.
