One mile south of Corydon on old Highway 135 is the site of the Civil War's "Battle of Corydon." The Skirmish occurred July 9, 1863 and was the only major battle fought during General John Hunt Morgan's raid throughout southern Indiana and Ohio. It is one of two battles ever fought north of the Mason-Dixon Line, the other being the Battle of Gettysburg. Six brave members of the Harrison County "Home Guards" lost their lives during the historic event. The battle also cost the Confederate army at least six of their soldiers.
