Black Brigade Monument – A Tribute to Courage

The Black Brigade Monument stands as a reminder of the voluntary service and sacrifice of hundreds of African-American men during the Civil War. In 1862, these brave individuals erected barricades in Kentucky as they were facing capture and being forced into harsh labor. The challenge for teams was to find this monument and take a photo honoring the names of the 700 brigade members. This stop was about paying homage to their courage and resilience, acknowledging their significant contribution to history, and reflecting on the enduring impact of their actions.
