January 19, 1862 - Battle of Mill Springs, Kentucky Although Brig. Gen. Felix K. Zollicoffer’s main responsibility was to guard Cumberland Gap, in November 1861 he advanced west into Kentucky to strengthen control in the area around Somerset. He found a strong defensive position at Mill Springs and decided to make it his winter quarters. He fortified the area, especially both sides of the Cumberland River. Union Brig. Gen. George Thomas received orders to drive the Rebels across the Cumberland River and break up Maj. Gen. George B. Crittenden’s army. He left Lebanon and slowly marched through rain-soaked country, arriving at Logan’s Crossroads on January 17, where he waited for Brig. Gen. A. Schoepf’s troops from Somerset to join him. Maj. Gen. George Crittenden, Zollicoffer’s superior, had arrived at Mill Springs and taken command of the Confederate troops. He knew that Thomas was in the vicinity and decided that his best defense was to attack the Yankees. The Rebels attacked Thomas at Logan’ ...

The earliest origins of the Wilderness Road were a trace, or trail, called Skaggs Trace used by the Longhunters traveling into Kentucky. The great herds of buffalo that once roamed the region traveled this trace. Native American tribes such as the Cherokee and Shawnee later used the trail to make attacks on each other. They called the path the Athowominee, variously translated as "Path of the Armed Ones" or "The Great Warrior's Path." In 1673, Shawnee warriors captured a young man named Gabriel Arthur. Before his release, Arthur became the first white settler known to have crossed through the Cumberland Gap using part of what would become the Wilderness Road. In 1750, an expedition led by Dr. Thomas Walker set out from Virginia with the aim of exploring lands further west for potential settlement. Discouraged by the rough terrain in southeastern Kentucky, the group turned back, but Walker's detailed report of the expedition proved to be an invaluable resource for later expeditions, including Boone's. In 1 ...
Today in history On Oct. 22, 1575, Aguascalientes, Mexico, was founded by Juan de Montoro to be a postal rest stop. In 1746, Princeton University, in New Jersey, was granted its charter. In 1797, the first parachute jump of note was made by Andre-Jacques Garnerin from a hydrogen balloon 3,200 feet above Paris, France. In 1836, Sam Houston became the first elected president of the Republic of Texas. In 1861, the first telegraph line linking the U.S. east and west coasts was completed. In 1862, during the Civil War, the Battle of Old Fort Wayne began in Indian territory; and Confederate troops recaptured Cumberland Gap, Tenn. In 1875, the Sons of the American Revolution was established. In 1907, "The Panic of 1907" occurred, eventually leading to the Great Depression; and the Ringling Bros.' Greatest Show on Earth bought the Barnum & Bailey Circus. In 1927, Nikola Tesla released six new inventions, including a motor with one-phase electricity. In 1934, bank robber Pretty Boy Floyd was killed by FBI agents i ...
Saturday Oct. 19 1861 SOUTHERN SHIPS SKIRMISH SUSTAINED Once again, no large battles or other important events occurred on this day. There was considerable scuffling and skirmishing in western Virginia, and area in considerable dispute because of the divided loyalties of the people of the mountains, who favored the Union, and those of the eastern part of the state who not only favored the Confederacy but contained its capital. Aside from this unpleasantness, there was an engagement between the USS Massachusetts and the CSS Florida off the coast of Mississippi. Near Ship Island in the region known as Mississippi Sound the two ships exchanged fire for some time, to little effect. Sunday Oct. 19 1862 CUMBERLAND CLOSENESS COMPRESSES CONFEDERATE CONVOY The battle of Perryville, Kentucky, had been over a week ago, but armies were still being repositioned in the aftermath of it. Gen. Braxton Bragg’s Army of Tennessee was endeavoring to pass through the Cumberland Gap, in company with a very large quantity of s ...

Here is a video of the dedication of the Boone's Trace at Cumberland Gap.
Why on Earth are people so up in arms over this bear in Robertson County? They act like we aren't supposed to have bears here. I for one would be excited to know that bears were living in my woods! Bears were inhabiting our area long before Daniel Boone crossed the Cumberland Gap. It was thanks to human encroachment and development, that we have not seen bears in this part of Kentucky for so long. I am glad to see the bears making a come back. It's not like Black Bears are blood thirsty killers who set out to attack humans. If stupid people (the ones who get mauled because they tormented the bear) would let bears have their space everyone can co-exist peacefully. Hats off to our Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources for their management of bear populations in Kentucky. Perhaps seeing a bear and her cubs while I'm taking a stroll in the woods will be as common as a deer and a fawn in the future.

Daniel Boone was one fascinating fellow. I bet you didn't know. -He didn't always know what he wanted to do with his life. During his early years he was a wagoner and blacksmith. -He was a really hard worker. With the help of just a handful of friends, he cleared the trail through the Cumberland Gap in 1769. This became the highway to the frontier. -He ran with a good crowd. He was born in 1734, George Washington was born in 1732, and Thomas Jefferson was born in 1743. All three knew each other personally and were buddies. -He was always getting captured. He was nabbed on 3 different occasions by Indians. -He was darn popular. He was elected to the Virginia Legislature 3 times. -He sure liked kids. He and his wife, Rebecca, had 10 children. Learn more about Daniel Boone the frontiersman, explorer, and American legend as portrayed by the talented Steven Caudill at this year's Gathering at Garst.

Champion H. Powell Champion H. Powell lived from 3 July 1841 to 31 December 1925. He was married to Angeline Cowart (5 June 1850-31 December 1899). Several sources including the 1850 and 1860 Census and his wife’s gravestone say Champion (or Champ) C. Powell. What’s there to say about Champ Powell? Has enough time passed since his passing (1925) so we can be complete in our telling of his life? I will try. From local and descendants stories and his compiled service record, I’ve learned that during the Civil War his father said that to survive, he should go to Chattanooga and enlist in the US Army. Apparently he had been a Confederate soldier based on a question asked by the pension board and answered by him. Was the Home Guard now threatening him? Perhaps several of his brothers had been killed in the Confederate Army. He did make that trip, a walking trip to Chattanooga where he joined the US Army thus becoming not the only Union soldier from Georgia. I’m disappointed to have never found a photog ...

By lunchtime, we're partly sunny with temps in the 80's. A few isolated bubble up showers and storms are again possible this afternoon, mainly along the Cumberland PKWY and towards the Cumberland Gap. Highs are expected in the mid 80's with a mix of sunshine and a few clouds. We'll clear things out tonight as temps drop into the upper 50's & low 60's.

Happy Hikers on the Wilderness and Tri-State trails today at Cumberland Gap NP
Here is a old road, US25. Three States meet here. Until around 1996. This road was closed due to deaths and killing in wrecks. It was a dangerous road in the mountains. A new tunnel was built around 1996 making 4 lane travel through the famous Cumberland Gap safer. On this road is a Cave, known as King Solomon's Cave. It is not a open cave anymore due to a rockslide/cave in/collapse. You will find it around page 22 or so. Anyhow, here is the Cumberland Gap History that reaches back to 1775 on our Nation's History and back tens of thousands of years beyond that towards the earlier days of Human Life here on the Earth as Buffalo traveled this gap seeking good grazing lands in seasons of change. If you happen to look up the old road in maps, you will need to pull up maps made earlier than 1980 that way you can be assured to find the original road itself. Most of it has been literally pulled up and restored back to Nature with the Pavement removed after 1996. Enjoy.
Heard in Sav-A-Lot this afternoon,that the business there had really picked up since Winn Dixie took over.They had very good specials,Kraft mayonnaise after coupon $1.99, beautiful babyback ribs with the tenderloin attached,Ball Park hot dogs, oscar myer hot dogs, cumberland gap bacon, butterball turkey bacon and bolonga $1.00.Ben doesn't know turkey bacon from the other.Also saw a lady in there from Adel,she said the Harveys had switched to BI-LOand the prices were outrageous. just sayin.
Thirty years ago this week, I arrived in Knoxville to earn my doctorate in industrial and organizational psychology. Accepted into four different doctoral programs, I chose UT over Tulane, Colorado State, and Missouri St. Lewis. It was a tough choice, but I chose Knoxville because I love the mountains and wild places of Tennessee, and I love the Appalachian culture and music. Appalachia runs deep in my blood, also. When Daniel Boone went through the Cumberland Gap into Kentucky, Aaron Van Cleave came with him. Squire Boone married Aaron's daughter Jane. I am descended from Aaron.

Continuing on the Background of Coal River Please keep in mind that I am typing this exactly as it is on the paper.spelling errors, duplicate words, etc. I feel that the more authentic it is, the better it is. THE WHITE MAN COMES TO BIG COAL pg 2 The first white man on Coal Ricer was John Salley, who explored the area on his way to New Orleans. He found coal near Racine in 1742 and named the stream Coal River, but he did not come upriver to this area. The first white man to come to Marsh Fork District (and Raleigh Co.) was Doctor Thomas Walker in 1750. He was given 800,000 acres of land north of the Virginia-North Carolina border. So he set out to find the best land for his company. He left southern Virginia and crossed through the Cumberland Gap into Tennessee and Kentucky to what is now Logan. Cumberland Gap was named for the Duke of Cumberland who had helped secure the land grant. From Logan, he crossed the Pond Fork to Boone County, down Hazy Creek and camped at its mouth at Edwight. From there he c . ...

Day 4- Releasing Glory Fires of Kentucky We got word this evening ( from the wonderful pastor who hosted us in Glasgow) that 7 churches in Glasgow had glorious services Sunday morning. In Four of the seven - During praise and worship Father moved and people were set free and the pastors never got to preach! The Red River horses are running! We worshipped yesterday afternoon atop 'Kingdom Come Mountain' amidst a very strong wind. in Harlen County Kentucky (Justified)! It was just glorious! We then worshipped down Penyllwn Street in the town of Cumberland Gap. ( Ray Hughes wanted us to glory there) Penyllwn was named after those who sing in the streets - "the song of the tongue" they would sing spontaneously, that is the essence of Penyllwn- synergy that comes from grabbing the language of God in the moment! It is in the DNA of the people Well, that is us! Hallelujah what a glorious few days.
The MetroKnoxville Track and Field meet is the last regular season meet for 2014 so often coaches pick and choose events for an athlete to perform a season best or gain a qualifying mark for the TSSAA Sectional Meets scheduled for next week. The big events for the day were both by Rusty Provins of Cumberland Gap with an outstanding Discus toss of 170 feet and a huge Shot Put of 59 feet. Both of these throws rank Rusty as the best in Tennessee for 2014 at this point in the season. The Maryville Girls team was first in the MetroKnoxville meet with 182 points, with Oak Ridge finishing third scoring 73. The highlight for OR Girls team was Hannah Craig in the Pole Vault with a School Record jump of 11-0 ft. Winning events for OR were Caelyn Thomson in the High Jump clearing 4 feet 10 inches and the 4x100 relay of Lauren Smallwood, Caelyn Thomson, Toni Sheetz, Tara Wilson running 51.68 seconds. Placing second were Hannah Craig in the Pole Vault jumpimg 11 feet, the 4x200 relay of Lauren Smallwood, Caelyn Tho .. ...
Just some ideas for camping that would have good motorcycle roads. 1- Cumberland Gap NP. Camping only and a nice ride would be to the Portal where you can take a coal mining tram into a mine for a tour. Then over Black Mountain into Virginia circle around back through Tennessee and over the Cumberland Gap. 2-Natural Bridge State Park. Camping and a lodge for any who prefer a comfy bed. Plenty of directions to ride from there. 3-Pickett State Park. Camping and some cabins. Don't know much about the park rode past it last year and it looked promising from the road. 4 -Anywhere else someone has an idea. I don't care as long as we can ride.

This is the first chapter, taken from my book "My Kentucky Heritage"and describes how me and my precious wife met almost 49 years ago. To order the book type in my full name Robert William Brock, Jr. under the books section at Amazon.com. My Wonderful Wife I could never write a book without expressing my love for my wonderful wife Margaret Sue Lefevers Brock, as she is the love of my life. “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother to be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh." Ephesians 5:31 Almost 49 years ago on May 9 I met my wonderful and beautiful wife Margaret, and each day I am blessed by all the wonderful memories I have that we have shared together. From the moment I saw her I loved her, and knew I wanted to ask her to be my wife. She was a cheerleader at Bell County High School, the same school that I graduated from, however I graduated in 1959, and she graduated in 1963. Even though I had graduated earlier than she had, I always attended all the basketball games, ...

Day 3- Releasing Glory Fires of Kentucky Day 3 began at the Red River meeting house site of camp meetings in 1800, we began began by listening to the birds and Accapla signing the old hymns The old house had all the musicians it could hold The verse that keeps ringing within me this morning is "The Red River horses are running- releasing the blood song" ( it was Derby Day in Kentucky) We sang the name of Yahweh for 10 minutes or more it just kept getting more intense! Our next stop was Bowling Green - there it was the jumping shout of a young autistic man in his teens singing FREEDOM That bought us to tears Our last gathering of the third day was in Glasgow at the River- a beautiful young worship leader named Jordan Who had been depressed after surgery on her voice- well, (she wasn't depressed last night) her voice and the worshipping company at the River were on perfect order as their worship produced a mist that filled the room, As we called bloodlines out of darkness into the light of their destiny! T ...

The Family Cemetery And Burial Practices In Appalachia The Family Cemetery The family cemetery in Appalachia has played an important role in social life, local history, and culture since Daniel Boone led the earliest settlers through the Cumberland Gap. The early settlers were coming into a country in which there were no roads, no white or European presence, and no prior history by their own kind of people. It was a rugged and dangerous environment. In a very short time, accidents, child birth, Indian warfare, and disease began to take their toll. Customs and sanitary norms of the time required that the dead be buried immediately. A certain percentage of those deaths took place even before the settlers were near an area where they intended to stay long term. In those cases, the dead were simply buried in the next available bit of ground where it was soft enough to dig. Many of those trail side graves have been lost for centuries. At times of Indian warfare, it was also not unknown for the settlers t ...
