This is the exciting and important story about the attempt by Richard Henderson and the Transylvania Company to steal the land claims of James Harrod and his company by claiming to have purchased the same land from the Cherokee Nation.

Virginia eventually voided the purchase restoring Harrod and the other settlers' claims but the path to victory was not easy. Come see the "Battle" that determined the fate of Kentucky!

You don't want to miss this! Good family entertainment in the open air. Refreshments will be served at the Concession Stand.

Bring your family and have fun while you learn a little about the history of Fort Harrod and Harrods Town.
