I went recently and was surprised to find the cabin open. The enthusiastic docents shard information about the battle and other interesting facts about Corydon and the area. With only a few volunteers it has been a challenge to keep this place open I’m afraid. Let’s hope for better times in the future.

Got to get here to see even small battles by the south were devastating. This leader was nothing but a common thug and thief

Unlike last year when they were closed due to Covid this year they celebrated the Battle of Corydon with demonstrations, music and speeches by Lincoln, etc. In the past they actually had a battle re-enactment and it was in downtown Corydon. This year it was at the park with additional parking at the nearby Methodist church. The re-enactors were enthusiastic and very informative. The Kentucky Home Guard was there providing period music for the guests. An hour would be sufficient to take in the events and Civil War displays.

I stopped at the Corydon Visitors Center and the lady stated it was closed but I could still stop by, so I did. There is not much there. The few markers give a glimpse of what happened. It is neat to stand in on the same ground as the brave men on both sides, but I would recommend waiting until it opens up.

Although the website doesn’t mention it the entrance is closed to traffic now. In fact the visitors center didn’t realize that the park is closed either. Is it the effects of the Coronavirus? Perhaps. You can still park your car outside the gates and take the short walk to the small battlefield and snap a few photos. It won’t take long as it’s not a big area of interest. There is just a small cabin, a canon, and a few markers, etc. commemorating the battle in 1863-a victory for Confederate General John Hunt Morgan. Of course there will be no activities this year to acknowledge the battle due to the virus threat. In fact, most things in Corydon have been cancelled this year unfortunately.

It was just a quick stop, with a couple pictures for Flat Stanley to write back to his student about.

We didn't get to go inside because it was closed when we visited so we walked around and checked out the site. Worth a stop to see.

We recently visited on a weekend trip - the docent, Doug, was great. Awesome information, not just about the site, but about General Morgan's life, the raid, and local history.
The cabin is a perfectly restored example of life during the civil war.
