Allensville, Kentucky, in Todd County claims to have been celebrating the 8th of August the longest—since 1868. In 2013, Clarence Morton Sr. celebrated his 100th birthday on Aug. 8, and Dave Shuffett was there to celebrate with him. His son, Clarence Morton Jr., details Allensville's rich history.

The 8th of August is both an Emancipation celebration and a homecoming that has been a tradition since the 1860s.
