 Northern Kentucky was largely isolated from much of the [[Civil War]], but Boone County still participated in the conflict. ​ Civil War era Boone County was, however, the setting for several local historical novels by Boone County’s most famous author ​ - [[John Uri Lloyd]]. Although Kentucky was officially neutral, men from the county served on both sides, which created dissension in families and in communities. ​ Two brief skirmishes took place in the county: one at [[Florence]] in [[1862]] and another known as [[Skirmish at Snow’s Pond]] near Walton in 1862.  In the summer of [[1863]], the famous Confederate [[general_john_hunt_morgan|General John Hunt Morgan]] rode through Boone County after his escape from a Federal prison. Northern Kentucky was largely isolated from much of the [[Civil War]], but Boone County still participated in the conflict. ​ Civil War era Boone County was, however, the setting for several local historical novels by Boone County’s most famous author ​ - [[John Uri Lloyd]].
