COLUMBIA, KY - Lindsey Wilson College will host author Ron Blair at 3pmCT, Tuesday, September 13, 2016, at LWC's Norma & Glen Hodge Center for Discipleship, 402 Helen Flatt DR, Columbia, KY, to discuss his new book on the life of Col. Frank Lane Wolford, entitled, Wild Wolf - The Great Civil War Rivalry. The event is a Kentucky Humanities Council and a Lindsey Writes Event. Contact: the Phil Hanna at (270) 384-8250 / firstname.lastname@example.org.
The book explores in detail Wolford's heroic leadership as commander of the Union 1st Kentucky Cavalry, who fought in more than 300 battles and skirmishes during which he was wounded seven times, and his notable rivalry with John Hunt Morgan and his Confederate band known as Morgan's Raiders. It also provides an in-depth look at the rise and fall of one of Kentucky's greatest cavalry commanders, and helps the reader understand the volatile political atmosphere in Kentucky during 1864-65, during which time Wolford was arrested for speaking out against the policies of President Abraham Lincoln.
Ron Blair, who is the great-great-nephew of Col. Wolford, is a member of the Civil War Trust for the preservation of Civil War Battlefields, the Kentucky Historical Society, Friends of Henry Clay, and the Morgan's Men Association. He has lectured on the subject of Wolford and the Civil War in various cities and states, and has contributed to several Civil War publications. He and his wife live in Lexington, KY.
The event is a Kentucky Humanities Council and a Lindsey Writes Event.
