The Battle of Perryville, fought October 8, 1862, finalized Confederate General Braxton Bragg's famous "Kentucky Invasion" with a tactical victory for the Confederacy, but an eventual retreat that set the stage for the end-of-year Battle of Stones River outside Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
"Perryville has long been the "forgotten" battle in Civil War history. This excellent site, visualized and built by respected and well-known historians working in the field, will go a long way toward changing that. I've bookmarked it and plan to visit often."
Ken Noe, author of Perryville: This Grand Havoc of Battle
"The Internet now has a definitive source for information on the fierce Kentucky battle of Perryville - and this site is it. Great in-depth information throughout. The essays and public domain documents are excellent, and don't miss the minute-by-minute account of the battle in the chronology. Wonderful site! " - Civil War Interactive
