From Cheryl Tillery
Camp Hobson Civil War Wayside Marker Ceremony will be held Saturday, September 17, 2016, at 11:30amCT/12:30pmET, at the Green River Tollgate House, 327 Tebbs Bend Road, in Taylor County. Dave Shuffett, KET personality, will be the guest speaker, dressed in his 13th KY uniform. His ancestor was mustered in at Camp Hobson.
Camp Hobson at Green River Bridge was the campground of several companies of two regiments: 13th Kentucky and the 21st Kentucky Volunteer Infantries. It occurred in December of 1861. Many troops from this area were recruited into companies of these two regiments. Colonel Edward H. Hobson of Greensburg commanded the 13th Kentucky and Colonel E.L.Dudley of Lexington, (a physician) commanded the 21st Kentucky.
After the men were recruited, they were mustered in, receiving a uniform and a weapon, and put into active service immediately. The mustering in ceremony will be re-enacted from 12:30pmET until 1pmET at this event.
After the swearing in ceremony, the program will continue at 1pmET with short presentations regarding where the regiments engaged in battle during the Civil War. The guests will then get on wagons to ride or take a 100 yard walk down to where the historic marker will be unveiled on Tebbs Bend Road, near Green River Bridge.
At the end of the ceremony, another wagon will return guests to the parking lot and refreshments will be served at the Tollgate House. Again, re-enactors are available for conversation with the public.
The public is invited to this event. Descendants of the Civil War Soldiers are especially encouraged to attend and be recognized. There is no admission fee. Bring a lawn chair in case there is insufficient seating. This event will be held rain or shine.
The committee in charge of this event includes: Dr. Ron Hatcher of Bowling Green, KY; Cheryl Tillery of Columbia, KY; Karen Wolfe of Greensburg, KY; Bruce Loveall and John Gatton from West Point and Louisville, KY; Bryan Taylor, Howard Humble, Suzanne Ince, June Fields, and Betty J. Gorin all of Campbellsville.
