Database of Perryville Casualties Now Available Online

Centre College Class Helps Park With Project

PERRYVILLE, Ky. – With the help of a class from Centre College, Perryville Battlefield State Historic Site now has a digital database of more than 5,800 soldiers who died, were wounded or went missing during the largest Civil War battle in Kentucky. Click here to access the database.

Split Rail Drive

Split Rails help Define the Space! We are making real progress on our Split Rail Drive! We are almost half way there! Please help! The fences were terrible obstacles that the soldiers had to overcome as they advanced across the landscape. Our mission will help return the park’s landscape to its appearance at the time of the battle as well as define those spaces where men struggled and died for our nation.

You can help build a battlefield by purchasing a split rail. The rails will be purchased from the West Virginia Split Rail Company at $8.50 per rail. This includes the shipping!

Please send your donation of $8.50 per rail to:

Blue & Gray Education Society Sponsored Interpretive Panel Project Complete!

.

chad sign sm

The Friends of Perryville partnered with the Blue Gray Education Society to provide the funding to replace over 24 interpretive panels currently on the trail system. The panels were in a very deteriorated condition and many of them were not legible.  This effort began over two years ago when the Blue Gray Education Society made an offer to partner with the Friends and help raise the funds to replace the signs.  It has been a tremendous success and we can happily report that the final sign order has been placed and the panels should arrive and be installed at the park within the next couple weeks!  Huzzzahhh for all those who made the effort to help on this project! We also want to acknowledge the park staff who spent countless hours working on the text and images – especially Kurt who went above and beyond duty to get this project finished!
