While there is evidence of earlier settlement, this area was most densely occupied from approximately — BCE, when the climate and vegetation were nearing modern conditions. The Green River floodplain provided a stable environment, which eventually supported the people's agricultural development early in the late Holocene era.
The abundant food resources and nearby mussel bed made it ideal for Kentucky natives to permanently settle.Reconstruction and the New South, – Reconstruction, –77 Reconstruction under Abraham Lincoln.
The original Northern objective in the Civil War was the preservation of the Union—a war aim with which virtually everybody in the free states agreed. As the fighting progressed, the Lincoln government concluded that emancipation of the slaves was necessary in order to secure.
