This week we will be traveling to and blogging from Illinois, Missouri, and up to three towns of our own Commonwealth.
Due to unforeseen health circumstances, we have yet to depart. We suggest checking back Friday, the 3rd of July.
Meanwhile, here is a downloadable copy of our provisional sites visitation list in no particular order. (Note: This list is subject to change.)

We wish to sincerely apologize for the lack of activity regarding
Kentucky History Fridays.
We have neglected to complete our Perpetual Disunion series or to publish new KHF content is quite some time; this was unintentional. I have been laboring fervently in recent months to design and implement the James Klotter Chapter of the Rho Kappa National Social Studies Honor Society as well as rally support for such organization; moreover, River Cities Chapter - as its members shall note - is undergoing reform. Thus the KHF audience continually waned as the blog ground to an inevitable halt.
Nonetheless we here at the HKI feel an obligation to the public; therefore we are exuberantly ecstatic to announce the resuming of Kentucky History Fridays! (In a differing manifestation.) Whilst the youth of DeMolay enact their progressive reforms, we too shall institute a reformation of the KHF joint HKI-RCD initiative.
As of yet we cannot guarantee a weekly article; I am working with a variety of other programs - i.e. JKC and HKI ACWSC - while simultaneously pending a position at the new Pikeville-Pike County Museum. We will announce our new KHF standard schedule as soon as possible.
Keep a watch on this blog in weeks to come however - namely, check back on the 29th of June. KHF will bring to you circa two weeks of coverage of our excursions to Illinois and Missouri! We hope this mini-trek may act as a suitable beginning to our reformed Kentucky History Fridays. We hope you will join us as we excavate the wondrous Land of Lincoln (though he is a native Kentuckian) and the Mother of the West; sites will include the Missouri Civil War Museum, the Old St. Louis Courthouse, Lincoln's New Salem, the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum, the Illinois Old State Capitol, Vandalia, and numerous others. It is also likely that we will visit Bardstown, Elizabethtown, and Hodgenville prior to exiting our Commonwealth.
Myself, HKI, and River Cities thank each of our Readers for their benevolent patience and aspire to retain their vital support for our refreshed endeavors.
