A Brief History of Kentucky
- The state of Kentucky has long been known for its production and distribution of several major cash crops including hemp and tobacco; because of this, Kentucky was a very prominent slave state before the outbreak of the Civil War. It was considered a major slave state and was one of the primary sources for slaves transported to the Deep South, particularly Louisiana and New Orleans. During the war, the state remained relatively neutral and was considered a border state until the Confederate Army moved into the state and the Kentucky state government unofficially backed the Union because of it. After the war Kentucky saw a large rise in its agricultural base and the state today is considered an outlying breadbasket state, though most of its agricultural output consists of tobacco. Livestock is also a major output for the state, bringing in a lot of money every year.
What to Expect When Shipping to or from Kentucky
- Sitting just across the Appalachian Mountains from Virginia, the state of Kentucky sees its fair share of winter weather that can make transportation to or from the state more difficult. However, on the whole Kentucky is a popular auto transport location given its location. With major interstates like I-75 and I-64 running through major cities such as Lexington, Frankfurt and Louisville, the state has several major corridors that auto transporters will travel along to move vehicles from one area of the state to another, or from one state to Kentucky, or vice-versa. When transporting to or from Kentucky sticking to major metro areas, like the ones mentioned, is a great way to save some money. There are plenty of cities that won’t cost extra, though most of them are along those major interstate corridors and as such you should discuss it in more detail with your auto transport representative.
