Samuel Boone:  Patriot & Kentucky Pioneer
Tuesday, October 8
Samuel Boone: Patriot & Kentucky Pioneer  (Program)
1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
1000 South Hurstbourne Parkway (at Linn Station Road), Louisville, KY

 

Presented by Helen McKinney 

Although Daniel Boone is likely the best known pioneer of the American Revolutionary and early Kentucky statehood periods in colonial America, his brothers were just as patriotic and adventuresome, and often with him wherever he went. His older brother Samuel (1728-1808) joined in the defense of Bryans Station in 1782 and had a son who was killed at the Battle of Blue Licks the same year. Samuel settled near Athens, Ky and along with his wife Sarah Day was a charter member of Boone’s Creek Baptist Church. He and Sarah left behind many descendants. As one of these descendants, Helen has been gathering information on Samuel and his family for years. She will share her findings at this LGS session.

Bowman Field Trains For D-Day
Tuesday, November 12
Bowman Field Trains For D-Day  (Program)
1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
1000 South Hurstbourne Parkway (at Linn Station Road), Louisville, KY

Presented by Charlie Arrington 

With the 75th anniversary of D-Day in 2019, this is a good time to take a look at the role that Bowman Field had in training air crews for the event. Air crews from several Troop Carrier Groups that participated in D-Day trained at Bowman Field to gain flight time before crossing the ocean and to build teamwork among the crew. Bowman Field was considered a finishing school for already trained glider pilots. Here they participated in cross country flight operations and took infantry training to be used when they became combat soldiers after landing. And of course, Bowman Field supplied 100% of the Air Evacuation Nurses that cared for so many wounded and injured during the D-Day landings
