Christian County, Kentucky Revolutionary War Monument


I recently learned that a new Revolutionary War monument will be erected this year to honor the soldiers & patriots of Christian County, KY who participated in securing Independence for a new nation... the United States of America.  Plans are being made for a 11 foot marker to bear the names of these Colonial patriots to be dedicated on July 4th. at the Kentucky Veterans Cemetery West in Hopkinsville.   One of my ancestors, Thomas West, Jr. will be listed.  Another one that should be listed is Jesse Buckner.  There will be a ground-breaking ceremony planned for May 17th.  I am planning on attending both of these ceremonies!
