Anderson County KYGenWeb

Gleaned from Wyatt Shely Papers

In the years immediately following the Civil War were turbulent times for Anderson County, as they were all over the South.
Lawless bands roamed the country robbing and terrorizing the people. The men of Anderson, many of whom had fought in the recent war from both sides, now joined together for the good of the community, to protect the neighborhoods from these rufians. During the years between 1865 and 1869 over 1000 Anderson County men & boys served in the County Militia.(Some names appear more than once, it is unknown if a different person or more than 1 enlistment.)

Many of these are veterans of the recent war fighting in mortal combat against one another, but joining together in time of peace to secure a safe home for their families.
