The Battle of Mill Springs

(#516) from Kentucky Life Program 516 (1999)

Newspaper editor and Civil War reenactor Stephen Bowling explains the historical significance of the Battle of Mill Springs. Confederate Brig. Gen. Felix Zollicoffer was killed at this January 1862 engagement in Wayne County, and the resulting disarray among his command led to a defeat that marked the beginning of the end for the Southern attempt to hold Kentucky.

Trouble with video in Firefox:

This is a known issue with the Window Media Video format.

Windows Media plugin is no longer maintained in Firefox, causing it to stop working.

Solution: Change the Firefox configuration file.
  1. Open a new tab or window.
    In the "Location/URL" bar, type "about:config" and press Enter.
    (The about:config "This might void your warranty!" warning page will appear. Click I'll be careful, I promise!, to continue to the about:config page.)
  2. In the "about:config" page search bar, enter:
    "plugins.load_appdir_plugins"
  3. Double click the preference name to change the "value" to true.
  4. Close and restart Firefox. The video should now work once you reopen the page.
    If not, then the WMV plugin may not be installed.
