If you have a story idea or photo concerning Kentucky Civil War events or activities, feel free to contact us by e-mail at fordpr@mis.net or call 859-624-1248. Our goal is to report and promote the Civil War in Kentucky as much and as often as we can.

At present, we publish online in January, April, July and October. With sufficient revenue, we would like to publish more often – perhaps six or 12 times per year.
About advertising….
It costs no more to advertise in The Kentucky Civil War Bugle for one year than it does to fill your gasoline tank once or maybe twice, or even less than buying a weekly supply of groceries for a family of four. For a one-time charge of $50, your product or service will be seen by thousands of Civil War enthusiasts and Kentucky tourists for a full year. That’s right – 12 full months.

Call 859-624-1248 or e-mail fordpr@mis.net to take advantage of a promotional offer that we bet no other advertising entity can match.

And, speaking of advertisers, we have some patrons with products and services that are sure to please. Take a look…
