Note: While visiting the battle field of Manassas Junction (or Bull Run) I was told by one of the guides there that the 1st Ky did not fight there. I told the guide that I had seen a record that stated the opposite of what he was telling everyone. The above was taken from that record.
I listed this gg uncle for the records for the 1st Ky CSA
Thanks for you work in this field.
