We are all about whatever it takes to get you more interested in Kentucky history and events that impacted Kentucky history.  We are even willing to PAY YOU to get you involved!  Okay, so “pay you” might be a bit much but we will certainly reward you for your efforts.  Recently we published a brief history of the 1861 East Tennessee Unionist Rebellion.   There is PLENTY of room for some “fan fiction” based on this harrowing tale. Want to let your imagination roam a bit and tell us a FICTIONAL story from this period? Give it a shot! Best story, as determined by our committee of experts, will win a $25 Amazon Gift card! Gift card could be more if we can get some donations for the effort.  All donations are tax deductible so if you think the award should be more feel free to donate. All donations until July 21st at Midnight will be added to the gift card total.
