Kentucky Bloodletting (DVD)

I have made a two part DVD of about 2.5 hours in length, covering the 1864 and 1865 reprisal executions that took place in Kentucky under the direction of Union General Stephen Gano Burbridge and his inhuman Order No. 59. This order directed the lives of four innocent Confederate prisoners of war to be executed at the site of any murder of a Union civilian. These reprisal executions took place across the state of Kentucky.

In this DVD, I have documented many of the executions and burial sites of those Confederate martyrs. I made use of research out of the book entitled, The Atonement of John Brooks, by James Head and Stewart Cruickshank.

The title of my DVD is Kentucky Bloodletting. It sells for $15, which includes postage. I did the video work on my own. (I hope you will not expect an award-winning Hollywood production!)

Thank you,
Nancy Hitt
