120 years ago in 1902, one of Calhoun's most historical figures Nancy Hart, went on to her maker to be buried in a rural Nicholas County cemetery.

To put it mildly, Hart enjoyed the company of blood-letting renegade Civil War soldiers who combed the region during that great conflict, not so much in combat for the passion attached to the war, but their own passions.

Hart's renegade life has been chronicled in several Hur Herald stories.
