In this episode we talk about one of the last battles of the Revolutionary War: the Battle of Blue Licks. This was fought on August 19, 1782 near present-day Mount Olivet in Robertson County. What happens when an outnumbered band of tired settlers with floundering leadership faces a much larger force of British and Native Americans with a three day head start? Nothing good for the settlers. Also we complain about the heat which is basically all I’ve been doing for weeks now.
