Whippoorwill, Ky. (Kentucky, United States) (search for this): chapter 224
Doc. 212. affair at Whippoorwill Bridge, Ky. December 4, 1861. The Louisville-Nashville Courier, of the 9th of December, gives the following details of the bridge-burning affair at Whippoorwill: A detachment of fifteen had been stationed at the bridge to guard it, of whom two were absent at the time of the attack. The Federals, fifty or sixty in number, under command of a Dutch Jew peddler named Netter, and among whom were several who had been raised in the neighborhood, made their appearance about daybreak Thursday morning. Four of the guard, who were on duty, and who were standing by a plank cabin, fired upon them, whereupon they received a volley of over one hundred rounds from Sharp's revolving rifles, killing two instantly and wounding another. Most of the shots were fired into the cabin, on the supposition that the rest of the guard were asleep in it, but fortunately they were in a cabin a little distance off. They were aroused by the firing, but by the time they wer

, but fortunately they were in a cabin a little distance off. They were aroused by the firing, but by the time they were up, the Federals were at the cabin, and they had to surrender. They put the prisoners under guard, tore down the cabins, put the planks on the bridge, which they sprinkled with turpentine, and then fired it. Our informant was set about gathering up the baggage of the guard, but, finding an opportunity, he made his escape and came to Russellville. Willis Campbell, of Logan County, a member of Captain King's company, and Hatch Jupin, of Bardstown, a member of Captain Wickliffe's company, were killed, and Joseph Wilson, of Bardstown, also in Captain Wickliffe's company, was severely but not dangerously wounded in the thigh. While loading his gun for the second fire, his right forefinger was shot off.
