19th century pastel/charcoal depicting the September 17th, 1863 evacuation of Union Brigadier General George Washington Morgan, Commander of the 7th Division of the Army of the Ohio, from Cumberland Gap, near the junction of Kentucky, Virginia, and Tennessee. During the Civil War, Cumberland Gap was held alternately by Union and Confederate armies. Union forces under Gen. George W. Morgan occupied it June 18 to Sept. 17, 1862. Cut off from supplies and surrounded, General George Morgan with 9,000 men retreated successfully to Greenup, KY on Ohio River, 200 miles in 16 days over mountain roads, and despite the harassment of CSA Colonel John H. Morgan's Raiders. (Information courtesy of the Kentucky Historical Society).
