The Battle of Hartsville has been called "the most successfully executed cavalry raid of the War Between the States." From this battle Col. John Hunt Morgan received his commission to brigadier general. The seventeen-stop driving tour includes buildings that were used as hospitals after the seventy-five minute battle, a river crossing where Morgan rushed 1,834 prisoners across the Cumberland towards Lebanon Tennessee, rendezvous points, homes and a cemetery.
