Annotation In its early days, Lexington was known as the "Athens of the West," but its history has not always been as genteel as that name would suggest. This book includes lurid tales involving infamous duels, lynch mobs, a cheating congressman, murders, and ladies of ill repute. Some of the characters are well known, like Henry Clay and Belle Brezing, but others have nearly been forgotten. 2011.
