Ronald Wolford Blair’s great-great uncle was a colonel in the Civil War.

The Lexington native’s ancestor, Col. Frank Lane Wolford, led more than 300 battles in the Civil War and was rivals with Confederate raider John Hunt Morgan.

When Wolford captured Morgan during the war after a 1,000-mile chase, he offered Morgan and his team some bourbon and chicken and dumplings for dinner – items he knew they were fond of, his recent book describes.

Blair’s book, called “Wild Wolf” after his great-great-uncle’s nickname, also shares a name with Kentucky Wolf Wild Bourbon Whiskey.

A celebration of both the book and the bourbon went down at The Party Source Monday, where patrons could get a signed copy of Blair’s book and taste the whiskey in one fell swoop.
