McKinney tailor-made for Mill Springs Battlefield director’s position


Nancy —

Now, as McKinney prepares to position Mill Springs the best he can to allow its inclusion in the U.S. National Park Service (see the accompanying article), he plans to work on expanding the historic site’s reach to a larger audience, and he intends on making the battlefield, the Mill Springs Visitor Center and Museum and the historic Brown-Lanier House B&B more valuable educational opportunities. 
“The Mill Springs Battlefield has huge potential to become a major tourist attraction,” said McKinney.
The ceremony for the 151st Anniversary of the Battle of Mill Springs is set for 1 p.m. tomorrow (Saturday) at Zollicoffer Park in Nancy, Ky. 
The program will include the raising and lowering of the flags by the Boy Scouts a speech from McKinney and a firing ceremony by the 4th Kentucky Infantry.
