Announcing a New
1917 Train Wreck Book

This book was originally two pamphlets which grew into a book in 2009. In the years since that volume was printed, additional information about the wreck and the people involved in it has continued to appear. Finally, we decided it was time to do a revised edition of the earlier volume in time for the 100th anniversary on December 20, 2017.

This new edition contains corrections and revisions to the earlier book, plus a considerable amount of new information, much of it shared by descendants of those involved in the wreck.

It is now available at the Bullitt County History Museum, and also through by following this link.

The book description from the back cover is shown below.
