Charles Jay Bishop II, an avid history buff and creative writer, has completed his new book “Morgan’s Station: The Last Indian Raid in Kentucky”: a compelling tale of the last Indian raid in Kentucky.
Bishop writes to begin his tale, “After a long pause, the reverend cautiously sank into the chair. ‘Mr. Wade, I respectfully disagree. By the glory of God, many of you survived the ordeal. It may not be the life you wished, but it is the one He provided you. And romance? What of Mr. Jim Beath, shot in the shoulder, dragged north, and sold to the British. Escaping and making his way home just before his wife, thinking him dead, remarried. Was that not love? And heroes, Mr. Wade? Did you yourself not pursue the savages to attempt a rescue? Fighting these Indians, is it not how you lost your eye? No, sir, this story has it all.’ The two men sat looking at each other for a long time. Neither man spoke nor even moved. Time stretched out. The big man sighed. ‘The problem with history is there is so little truth written in it.'”
Published by Newman Springs Publishing, Charles Jay Bishop II’s chilling tale is based on historical fact.
After the station had been burned and many had been taken prisoner, the team that set out to pursue and rescue stumbled upon the prisoners, tomahawked and scalped, and one who had suffered greatly but still lived.
Readers who wish to experience this gripping work can purchase “Morgan’s Station” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iBooks Store, Amazon, or Barnes & Noble.
