Federal Brig. Gen. John Buford is part of the “Kentuckians in the Civil War” exhibit at the Richmond Visitors Center.
In honor of the Civil War Sesquicentennial, the Battle of Richmond Visitors Center has opened its “Kentuckians in the Civil War” exhibit.
The exhibit consists of portraits of native Kentuckians who rose to prominence as Civil War generals, both Union and Confederate.
The first set of portraits include Federal generals Thomas Crittenden, Robert Anderson and John Buford, along with Confederates John Bell Hood, Albert Sidney Johnston and John C. Breckinridge. Other notables, such as Confederate Simon Boliver Buckner, will be added during the exhibits run. The center also received a donation of a replica of Abrahams Lincoln’s watch. The piece, donated by a local supporter, is set to 7:22, reflective of the time Lincoln died after being mortally wounded by John Wilkes Booth.
The center is currently open 10 AM – 4 PM Monday through Saturday, and 1 PM to 4 PM on Sunday.
