Muhlenberg Co., KY

General Muhlenberg made two trips to Kentucky in 1784. His life is part of the history of Muhlenberg County, not only because the county is a namesake of his but also because many of its pioneers fought under him in the Revolution...A number of the pioneers, as already stated, were Revolutionary soldiers, but more of them were sons of such veterans.
