Tebbs Bend-Green River Bridge Battlefield

The Battle of Tebbs Bend, July 4, 1863, was “one of the most outstanding small victories in the Civil War.”

John Hunt Morgan, and his dauntless cavalrymen, roamed the countryside of Taylor and surrounding counties in KY, burning Pleasant Hill Church, stockades and bridges, tearing up rail lines, and striking fear into the hearts of Kentuckians, with Union forces in hot pursuit. The "invincible" Morgan met his match in Michigan's Col. Orlando Moore at the decisive bloody battle of Tebbs Bend, July 4, 1863.
