Wondering how to edit this U.S. County Entry?
The WikiProject U.S. Counties standards might help.

One of, if not the best Kentucky County articles on Wikipedia[edit]

A pat on the back to all the editors! Thanks! Ancjr 06:24, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

The Super Outbreak[edit]

In the spring of 1980 I worked on a subcontracting crew in one of the National Forests replanting the area devastated by the tornado swarm of April 3 and April 4, 1974, the storm called the Super Outbreak. We were reforesting with the lumber producing shortleaf pine, for $.10 per tree, a real deal back then, as most sites only paid $.05 per tree. I'd like to add a small paragraph about the impact of the tornado in that area, particularly on the ruggedness of the terrain (the reason for the great pay!), and the Old Growth trees that remained on those slopes (which could only be timbered by heicopter). Thing is, I don't see McCreary County on the wiki Super OUtbreak list. I know it hit that county, so should I go ahead and add the paragraph? I'm also adding this to the Super Outbreak discussion page. Just looking for experienced wiki advise. Thanks. Soltera 14:20, 25 May 2007 (UTC)

Civil War History[edit]

The Civil War is summed up by this passage: "During the Civil War, the region was the scenario of heavy fighting between Union and Confederate forces fighting for control of Fort Donelsen, and as part of the Union effort to secure the Cumberland. The fall of Fort Donelsen culminated in the eventual capture of Nashville.[4]"

Fort Donelson and Nashville are far to the west of this county. I am wondering if the contributor has confused it with McCracken County. I would just delete the passage, but since it is referenced and I have no access to the work cited, I am hesitant to do this without someone else's input.
