Few claims were paid for the property confiscated by Union troops in pursuit of Morgan's Confederate raiders since the federal government required receipts.
Historians concur that there were many Southern sympathizers in Indiana. Whether they were plotting the violent overthrow of the state government is unclear.
In the summer of 1863, a young woman wrote her cousin about the "visit paid to the citizens of Corydon and vicinity by Morgan and his herd of horse thieves.”
Legend has it that Indiana’s constitution was debated and ultimately drafted underneath a massive elm, whose trunk was five feet in diameter.
Morgan's Raid was one of the few Civil War battles fought in the North, and remains the last battle to have been fought within Indiana borders.
