Battle of Big Hill Reenactment
The Battle of Big Hill, KY took place on August 23, 1862, at the top of Big Hill in Madison, Jackson and Rockcastle counties. More of a skirmish between dismounted cavalry units, it was the first sizeable engagement of the August 1862 Confederate Kentucky invasion. It pitted untrained KY Union cavalrymen against somewhat experienced Louisiana Confederate cavalrymen with attached artillery.
The reenactment is held on the 3rd weekend of August at the Jackson Energy Farm on HWY 290, 5 miles south of McKee.
