Battle of Blue Licks presentation on November 7
From Mike Watson

The Battle of Blue Licks
This program was first presented at the 2015 National Sons of the American Revolution Congress in Louisville, and is now listed in the Kentucky Humanities Council Speakers Bureau catalog.
Eddie Price walked and photographed the state park grounds, spoke with historians and park rangers, and researched meticulously to create this education program on Kentucky's (then western Virginia's) war efforts. Great for patriotic groups, historical and genealogical societies, and classes wanting to learn more about Kentucky in the Revolutionary War.
By 1782 the American Revolution was drawing to a close. Lord Cornwallis had surrendered at Yorktown and negotiators were hammering out the Peace of Paris. But the war still raged for frontier settlers, American Indians and Canadian rangers. On August5 19, 1782, Kentuckians would suffer one of the worst military defeats of the war. Learn about the events leading up to the battle that some historians call "The Last Battle of the American Revolution."
Complete with colorful PowerPoint slides depicting the western theater of the war, George Rogers Clark's exploits, frontier massacres, maps, and photographs of the battlefield, and a travelogue of one of Kentucky's oldest state parks, this program is a "must see" for Kentuckians.
