Rattling Spurs and Broad-Brimmed Hats
I've corresponded a bit with author William Penn over the years (but not recently) about his plans for a new expanded edition of Rattling Spurs and Broad-Brimmed Hats: The Civil War in Cynthiana and Harrison County, Kentucky, his 1995 book that combines county history with accounts of 1862 and 1864 John Hunt Morgan raids (specifically the two Cynthiana battles). The 1st ed. has been out of print for quite a while and commands a hefty asking price on the secondary market but a 2014 revised version is now available for free viewing and download on the http://www.harrisoncountyky.us/ website [direct link to book here]. If you're at all interested in the subject matter, I recommend picking it up.
