I am going to Pikeville KY soon and I was wondering if anyone knew of any great Civil War sites to visit while I am there. I was thinking of things within an hour drive from Pikeville. Thanks in advance!

Middle Creek, outside of Prestonsburg, is about it. Mountain Homeplace in Paintsville used to be interesting.

Why the trip to Pikeville (where my family is from)?

There is more then you think. No major battles, but few things that may catch your eye. Check out the link below. It might give youy some ideas of what to look for in the area.

I don't know about Civil War sites, last time I was in Pikeville was when I was 10 years old. My grandfather was from Pikeville. Make sure you visit the Breaks of the Mountains while you are there. I still remember that place even as a youn child. I'll give my pops a call and see if he knows of any places.
