Rebel raider Captain John Hunt Morgan's two famous Kentucky raids in 1862 and 1864 included significant engagements with Union forces at Cynthiana. Morgan's mission was to destroy railroad facilities, disrupt communications, acquire supplies, recruit, and threaten the community of Cincinnati. 

The Cynthiana Battlefields Foundation exists to interpret, preserve, and increase awareness of the 1862 and 1864 Civil War battles of Cynthiana and the Civil War stories of Harrison County.
