Pieceful Valley


History

During the Civil War, the Union Army established Camp Billy Williams on this site to guard the Green River against enemy infiltration, and in December 1861 the camp was placed under the command of Col. Frank Wolford of the 1st Kentucky Cavalry.  The “Wild Riders” of the 1st Kentucky constantly scouted the heavily forested countryside surrounding the camp to keep the Rebel raiders at bay. 

In July 1863 Colonel Wolford set out from Camp Billy Williams in pursuit of Confederate General John Hunt Morgan, finally capturing him and the remainder of his 2,500 men near Stubenville, Ohio after 24 days of hard riding through Kentucky, Indiana and Ohio.
