Mike Watson first to pledge to Camp Boyle marker

First an historical marker; later, 13 Kentucky Cavalry Park
'Currently a Kentucky Historical marker costs $2,500.00 The money has to come from private donations, the government will not pay for such a marker. If we could get 100 business and individual to donate $25 to the cause it would be rather easy. I think it would be fitting to put information about the 13th Kentucky on one side, and Information about Camp Boyle on the other. That would be a good start until a rich benefactor can be found to buy up some of the dilapidated buildings on the square, and tear them down to build the 13th Kentucky Cavalry Park, complete with a bronze statue of a Kentucky Cavalry man, on a fine stallion. - Chris Bennett

Mike Watson writes:
Chris Bennett is absolutely correct in what he has related. Perhaps the erection of the monument can coincide with the release of the book on the 13th Kentucky Cavalry, which has more information on the men who served in it than regimental history--and Chris explained why, there are few primary sources available...but many, many stories of brave men and women who fared as best they could during the War.

Start up the fund and I'll one of the 100.

--Mike Watson
