Bourbon County Revolutionary War Soldiers

img_1264In Memory of the Patriots, Soldiers of the American Revolution who died Citizens of Bourbon County

One hundred and fifty-four names are on this plaque located on the side of the steps leading to the Bourbon County Courthouse.  What a remarkable number of brave men who fought for our freedom from England in the Revolutionary War.  I wonder if this a record number of patriots who moved to a Kentucky county and lived there their entire lives?
