Cane Ridge Church, Birthplace of Disciples of Christ. (Printed verso reads: "Cane Ridge Church, scene of the 'Great Kentucky Revival' 1801, attended by 20,000 to 30,000 people of all sects from many states. The 'falling exercise' and the 'jerks' were symptoms of the emotional excitement prevalent and many who had never spoken a word in public, even children, preached and prayed eloquently. This little log building, now weatherboarded, became the birthplace of the Christian Church Disciples of Christ under Barton W. Stone, 1772-1844, whose purpose was a simplification of creed for Christian unity.")
