Kentucky Confederates

By the fall of 1864, Purchase secessionists knew Confederate defeat was almost certain. Forrest boosted their spirits again, but only fleetingly, by occupying Fort Heiman in remote southeastern Calloway County and shooting up Yankee boats on the Tennessee River. He soon shelled the Union supply depot at Johnsonville, Tennessee. Forrest's foray did not change the war's inevitable outcome. Nor did the Purchase vote have any effect on the presidential election. Paine was court-martialed in early 1865 but acquitted on all but a minor charge; his punishment was a reprimand in general orders. Secessionists—and conservative Unionists—fumed that he got away with robbery and murder. Gradually, guerrilla warfare that had plagued the Purchase since 1862 petered out, and spring brought Confederate defeat.
