-A A +A
By Bonnie Strassell

During the War of 1812, 63-year-old Kentucky Governor Isaac Shelby personally led the Kentucky militia into battle against the British and their Indian allies.
Early in the war, Kentuckians  had suffered a great defeat and massacre at the hands of the British and Indians on the banks of the Raisin River.
Seeking revenge and shouting the battle cry of “Remember the Raisin,”  thousands of Kentuckians volunteered to join Shelby. Five brigades of Kentucky militia and 1,000 volunteer cavalry met at Newport in July of 1813.
