ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. (AP) -- A central Kentucky county is hoping to land an $8,000 grant to document a Civil War battle as the 150th anniversary of the conflict nears.
The Hardin County History Museum has applied for the grant to document the Battle of Elizabethtown.
During the raid on Dec. 27, 1862, Confederate Gen. John Hunt Morgan's troops fired more than 100 cannonballs into the heart of town on their way to attack railroad trestles to the north.
The Elizabethtown News-Enterprise reports that the project would provide a comprehensive survey of structures involved in the battle, install interpretive markers and provide ideas on management and preservation.
Museum chairman Tim Walker would like to have the project finished by spring.
