The focal point of this meticulously researched book is the 1793 Indian raid on Morgan's Station in which a band of about thirty-five Shawnee and Cherokee Indians descended upon this small fort in a surprise attack that ended with two people killed and 19 women and children captured. Additionally, Mr. Enoch describes the years preceding and immediately following the raid; in all, covering more than a quarter century of early Kentucky history. Although Mr. Enoch's narrative ends in late 1796 with the establishment of Montgomery County, he includes an epilogue, which tells what became of the surviving captives of the Morgan's Station raid.
