A commemoration was held on October 28, 2014, for the 150th Civil War anniversary of Fort Fort 150th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence. Murray was strongly pro-Confederate during the Civil War, and parts of the town were burned by the Union Army in retaliation for its presumed support for the Confederate guerrillas. An estimated 800 men from the area joined in the Confederate Army, either as infantry in the Kentucky Orphan Brigade or in the cavalry. About 200 sided with the Union.

The County Court voted unanimously in 2020 to keep the statue rather than relocate it from courthouse grounds.

History

The city now known as Murray began as a post office and trading center sometime in the early 1820s. It was at first called Williston in honor of James Willis, an early settler. The name was changed again to Pleasant Springs before its incorporation on January 17, 1844, when the present name was adopted to honor Rep. John Murray. Both Murray and Calloway County were strongly pro-Confederate during the Civil War. An estimated 800 men from the area joined in the Confederate Army, either as infantry in the Kentucky Orphan Brigade or in the cavalry. The Confederate Monument was donated by the United Daughters of the Confederacy and has been subject to calls for removal most recently in 2020. The County Court voted unanimously in 2020 to keep the statue rather than relocate it from courthouse grounds. The town Murray was laid out on an 80-acre (320,000 m2) plot subdivided into 137 business and residential lots divided by eight streets. In 1842, the state legislature divided the area, creating Marshall County. It was felt that a more centrally located county seat was needed, and as the village of Murray was at the geographic center, it was chosen. No major battles were fought near the town, but guerrilla warfare sometimes took place nearby. In the spring of 1862, a Union force stationed in Paducah marched across the county to the Tennessee River, taking anything it wanted from the inhabitants without paying. Once, part of the town was burned by the Union Army in retaliation for its presumed support for the Confederate guerrillas.
