This weekend the Battle of Richmond, Kentucky was reenacted. The cannons fired, the horses galloped and the troops fought. Despite the 100 degree heat index everyone soldiered on. The number of visitors was up as was the number of re-enactors. There was more artillery too. If you haven't seen a night firing of artillery you have really missed something. They do that on Saturday night. I talked with soldiers from as far away as Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Visitors came from Mexico, Spain and from surrounding states. The Sisters of Charity from Cincinnati also had a display and one of the nuns came to represent them. During the battle the Sisters of Charity had six nuns in the area nursing the injured. Thanks to all the visitors and re-enactors who came to this event. Without the Re-enactors there would be no event. Look for the event next year about the last weekend in August.

Other events include the Great American Festival in Richmond Sept 5-6,2014
and a historic Christmas event in the Irvington House in Richmond in December.
