Erecting a historical marker on North 55 at the site of Camp Boyle, the training ground and organization point for Adair County's own 13th Kentucky Cavalry is a way the citizens of Adair County can remember the 150th anniversary of America's Civil War. The Civil War was undoubtedly America's worst war, there were more than 650,000 killed and wounded in the conflict. Hopefully America will never see fit to take up arms against their brothers and neighbors again.

The response thus far to the suggestion to raise $2,500 for a Camp Boyle Kentucky Historical Marker has so met with great enthusiasm. Thanks to everyone who has responded in the silent phase of the campaign. We'll be giving complete details as the campaign goes along. We hope to be able to list all names, but we will respect the wishes of those donors who want to give to the fund but prefer their names not be publicized. So far, there are commitments totaling $575.

Chris Bennett is heading up a drive to have a Kentucky Historical Society Marker placed in Columbia to remember the important role the enlistment camp played prior to what Derek Coomer has suggested was the pivotal battle of the Civil War. Camp Boyle was on the Barbee family ancestral lands on the right bank of Russell Creek, just north of the Campbellsville Street Bridge. Rev. Patton is a descendant of Chaplain R.F. Mills of the the 13th Kentucky Cavalry. As a result of the show, a new pledge of $50 brings the total pledged to $625 of $2,500 need to pay for the marker.
