Louisville has a long and rich history. For instance, Louisville was a major stronghold for Union forces during the Civil War, keeping Kentucky firmly in the Union. The city was also the center for planning, recruiting, supplies and transportation. Fortunately, Louisville was never attacked, but had skirmishes around the city. The Confederate veterans took control of the city after war. In 1875, the first Kentucky Derby was held. Meriwether Lewis Clark Jr., the grandson of William Clark of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, created the derby.1 The weather in Louisville is a humid, subtropical climate with the summers hot and humid with an average rainfall of approximately 44 inches a year.
