This tour focuses on a historic Lexington neighborhood and the 18- year-old girl who witnessed the Civil War from the window of her home. Using excerpts from her diary, we will learn about the divided nature of Lexington by touring the Gratz Park neighborhood that was the home of Union supporters, Confederate sympathizers, occupying forces and the “Thunderbolt of the Confederacy”, John Hunt Morgan. Join us as we open a window on the citizens of Civil War Lexington when neutrality was not an option. Come and enjoy the history of Gratz Park and then take in one of Lexington premiere events- The Blue Grass Trust for Historic Preservation’s Bourbon and Brews on Broadway.
