The Aftermath of Kentucky’s Largest Civil War Battle

The Battle of Perryville laid waste to more than just soldiers and their supplies. It also took an immense toll on the community and citizens in surrounding towns. In his book, “Perryville Under Fire: The Aftermath of Kentucky’s Largest Civil War Battle,” Stuart Sanders presents the first in-depth look into how Perryville’s resilient residents dealt with the chaos of this bloody battle.

Sanders is former executive director of the Perryville Battlefield Preservation Association and now is Outreach Services manager for the Kentucky Historical Society, where he works with history organizations across the state
