Uncle Bob's Travels

Places I've hung out in or just neat postcards

Harlan KY signs

Both of these signs are in front of Harlan’s impressive courthouse.  The first one reminds us of how chaotic and dangerous it was during the years of the civil war that broke out in the United States in the middle of the 19th century.  “Your burn my courthouse; I’ll burn yours!”

This plaque shows you how long coal has been hauled out of Harlan County (the date’s hard to read. It’s August 23, 1911):
