16th Annual Battle of Blue Licks Memorial Service

Event Location

Event Date & Time

The Kentucky Society invites you to join them in commemoration of the 239th Anniversary of the Battle of Blue Licks.  This will include a memorial service held at the Battle of Blue Lick Monument in the Blue Licks Battlefield State Park.

On 19 August 1782, American Militia under the command of Colonel John Todd with subordinate officers Lt. Col. Stephen Trigg and Lt. Col. Daniel Boone were led into an ambush and defeated by a combined force of American Indians and British Rangers.  The battle, one of the last in the American Revolution, took place on a hill next to the Licking River in present day Kentucky.  The vastly outnumbered American force of approximately 182 suffered casualties of approximately 72 killed and 11 captured.
