Taylor Co. Courthouse mural celebrates Union Army moment
Comments re photo 49049 Trail Town proclamation event Tuesday April 9 2013
By Paul Patton
The mural on the Taylor County Court House depicts the moving of Union Troops down Main Street in Campbellsville on their way from Lebanon to Nancy, KY where they engaged in the Battle of Mill Springs which was fought in January, 1862.
The three officers pictured in the mural were the three highest military officers to pass through Campbellsville during the Civil War. In the center is General George Thomas. On the left is Col. Robert McCook who later became a general. The man on the right is Col. Mahlon Manson who also became a general later in the war. Col. McCook and Col. Manson were Brigade leaders under General Thomas. - Paul Patton
Thanks, Paul Patton, for that clarification. The mural is, in itself, a reason to take a day trip to Campbellsville - even more so with the information you have supplied. Thanks. - EW
