========================================
Ah so Lisa,

The Licking River was an important avenue for the early exploration of Kentucky. Along with an overland route through the county, English Capt. Henry Bird took the river in leading six hundred Indians and Canadians in the June 1780 attack on Ruddell's and Martin's stations in central Kentucky.
