He served as member of the State House of Representatives in 1847, 1848, 1865, and 1866. He was a celebrated cavalry officer, nationally known and deeply respected by the soldiers who served under him, and rival of Confederate Raider John Hunt Morgan.

Often bringing them back to life for all the ages.”Carson has built up a team around the country to document small town history, he said.
