Battle of Blue Licks, fought on August 19, 1782, was one of the last
battles of the American Revolutionary War. The battle occurred ten
months after Lord Cornwallis's famous surrender at Yorktown, which had
effectively ended the war in the east. On a hill next to the Licking
River in what is now Robertson County, Kentucky (but was then in
Kentucky County, Virginia), a force of about 50 American and Canadian
Loyalists along with 300 American Indians ambushed and routed 182
Kentucky militiamen. It was the last victory for the Loyalists and
Natives during the frontier war.
