On February 15, 1794, George Blessing, who would become famous as "The Hero
of The Highlands" on July 9, 1864, was born. He died December 18, 1873.
Blessing and his family held off an attack on their farm by Confederate
soldiers who were determined to "confiscate" his animals and other goods for
their unit.
