Kentucky Life

Camp Nelson/Valley View Ferry/Davis and Lincoln Memorials

28:30 | #112 | TV-G

Now a military cemetery, Camp Nelson was a training camp for African-American troops during the Civil War, then a refugee camp for their families. The Valley View Ferry, the oldest continuously operating business in the state, hauls cars across the Kentucky River between Fayette and Madison counties. Both Civil War presidents were born in Kentucky, and both have monuments in the state: Abraham Lincoln's in Hodgenville and Jefferson Davis' near Hopkinsville. A 1995 KET production hosted by Byron Crawford.
