Kentucky's greatest Civil War battle took place outside Perryville on October 8, 1862. It was the South's last serious attempt to gain possession of the state. A museum on the grounds interprets the battle and its aftermath. Civil War historian Ed Bearss has praised Perryville Battlefield as one of the finest interpretive walking trails in the United States.
