It was the site of the first mural of a massive herd of buffalo that first caught our attention.
The murals stretch 20 feet along the river front in Covington, Kentucky. Each one has a year on the top arch and a title along with the sponsors underneath it.
If the first mural hadn’t hooked us the second one surely would have. Titled Meeting at the Point is depicts General George Rogers Clark mustering troops along the Licking River where it meets the Ohio. This depiction is dated 1782 and was Clark’s second expedition into the Ohio Country.
In early November just months after the fateful Battle of Blue Licks, Clark convened “The Meeting at the Point.”
Although General Clark was not present at the Blue Licks many, including Daniel Boone placed much of the blame on Clark as head of the military in Kentucky. Over 70 major figures in Kentucky were killed in that British/Indian ambush on August 17, 1872.
