Edmund Kirby Smith

[Table of Contents]

On September 21, 1862, raiding parties of Confederate General Edmund Kirby Smith were in Shepherdsville, and a Confederate force under General Braxton Bragg held Frankfort.  Union forces at Louisville feared Smith and Bragg would consolidate forces and attack Louisville.  Their fears were amplified on September 26th when a 500-man Confederate cavalry troop swooped into the vicinity of 18th and Oak Streets and captured approximately 50 Union soldiers.
