Blue Licks Battlefield State Resort Park commemorates more than one era of history! Salt springs at Blue Licks attracted prehistoric mammoths and formed a center of Indian life, then later proved important to frontiersmen like Daniel Boone, who was captured here by Indians while operating saltworks. But Blue Licks is most renowned as the site of the last battle of the Revolutionary War in Kentucky. In 1782, outnumbered by the British, Kentucky suffered great losses, including one of Boone's sons. Blue Licks returned to its glory days as a polished resort in 1999 with a new lodge.
