The Kentucky @ 225 Listening Tour will visit Camp Nelson Civil War Heritage Park at 3 p.m. Saturday. The traveling history series, sponsored by the Kentucky Historical Society, asks participants to consider “What makes Kentucky, Kentucky?”
The Camp Nelson session will be led by Patrick Lewis, project director of the Civil War Governors of Kentucky Digital Documentary Edition. People who attend the sessions are shown a 2-minute video celebrating Kentucky’s 225th year of statehood, and then the conversation turns to how their own communities have contributed. Session participants are asked to keep a record of their responses so they can continue to reflect on them during the state’s yearlong birthday celebration.
To date, more than a dozen communities have been visited by the listening tour, with another 30 scheduled. For more information, call 859-881-5716.
