January 31, 1862 – in Lebanon, Kentucky – On January 31, Capt. John H. Morgan led his 10 Confederate raiders to the town of Lebanon. When they arrived, Morgan discovered 3 Union supply wagons along with the Union mess crew, commanded by Lt. Short. The Confederates captured the wagons and the entire 11 mess crew. The wagons contained food, clothing, telegraph instruments, and other stores. After loading up with all of the supplies that they could carry with them, they set fire to the remainder of the supplies, the local church, and the wagons. After this, the Confederates left town, heading towards the Green River. Morgan had his men wear captured blue Union overcoats to fool any Union patrols that they might encounter.
