Camp Nelson, Equine Artist Jaime Corum, and More

Civil War Photography at Camp Nelson

Camp Nelson National Monument in Harrodsburg, Kentucky, is an important archaeological site, and new artifacts are still being discovered at the former Civil War camp.

“Camp Nelson was a U.S. Army supply depot, recruitment camp, and hospital during the Civil War,” says Dr. Stephen McBride, historical archaeologist at Camp Nelson. “We were one of the largest recruitment and training centers for African American soldiers, and then we were also a large refugee home for their wives and children.”

Learn more about photography from the Civil War found at Camp Nelson and watch the video.

Camp Nelson Honor Guard

In this episode’s Kentucky Life memory, host Dave Shuffet explored Camp Nelson’s current place in history as home of the Camp Nelson Honor Guard. It’s one of only three honor guards in the nation that perform full and enhanced military honors.

“My family is from this area,” says Tracy Lucas, Commander of the Camp Nelson Honor Guard. “I had two grandfathers who served in the Civil War – one from the north and one from the south – and they both came through this area.”

Find out more about the Camp Nelson Honor Guard and watch the video.

Equine Artist Jaime Corum

Kentuckian Jaime Corum combines her love of horses and passion for painting in her career as an equine artist. Her talent has taken her to the stalls of equine royalty and made her well known in the Thoroughbred industry.

“Since I was a little girl, I started drawing horses, kind of obsessively,” says Corum. “I wasn’t able to have a horse at the time, and so it was just my way of being close to the animal that I loved so much.”

Paducah’s Art Deco Coke Plant

The former Coca Cola bottling plant located just west of downtown Paducah, Kentucky, is a testament to the entrepreneurial spirit, past and present.

The building traces its origins to a 1937, when the Ohio River flooded, submerging much of downtown Paducah. Luther S. Carson was a businessman who owned a bottling plant downtown, which was lost in the disaster. The story goes that Carson was rescued from the building and brought to the nearest dry land, and he vowed to rebuild on that very spot.

During an 11-year MLB career, Flynn won two world championships with the Reds and a Gold Glove award at second base for the New York Mets.

Doug was born and raised in Lexington and is involved with numerous civic and charitable organizations, including Hope for the Warriors and the American Association for the Prevention of Substance Abuse in Athletics. He is a graduate of Somerset Community College, and a member of the Kentucky Athletic Hall of Fame.

Dave Shuffett, Host for Seasons 6 – 20

As host of Kentucky Life from 1999 to 2015, Dave Shuffett received nine Emmy nominations for on-camera performance and producing.
