Hart County's seat of government is Munfordville, site of a Civil War battle in 1862. The museum includes Civil War memorabilia related to the battle of Munfordville natives, Confederate Brig. Gen. Simon Bolivar Buckner (later governor of Kentucky) and Union Maj. Gen. Thomas Wood. Buckner and Wood were childhood friends and classmates at West Point, an association that well illustrates Kentucky's deep divisions during the Civil War. Museum staff can direct you to sites of the Battle of Munfordville.
