A Good Fight in Front of the Court House #kentuckypioneers #genealogy

A Good Fight in Front of the Court House

Court House Square Lexington KentuckyA capital day in Lexington was described in The Blue Grass Region of Kentucky by James Lane Anderson as "a most admirable and serene day for fighting. Fights grew like a fresh-water polypeby being broken in two: each part produced a progeny." Thus, while the justices sat quietly on the bench inside, and the people fought quietly in the streets outside, a day of the month was set apart for the conservation of the peace for individual war. There is no evidence that either the justices or the constables ever interfered. "These pugilistic encounters had a certain law of beauty: they were affairs of equal combat and of courage. The fight over, animosity was gone, the feud ended. The men must shake hands, go and drink together, become friends."
