The information in this list of Kentucky Military Units comes from the Civil War Soldiers and Sailors web site (CWSS). That web site can also be searched by the name of a soldier.

  • Bolen's Independent Company, Kentucky Cavalry (Confederate)
    Assembled in August, 1863, and contained men from five different regiments of J.H. Morgan's dispersed command. It was assigned to B.W. Duke's Brigade in the Department of Western Virginia and East Tennessee, and saw action in several conflicts in Kentucky, Tennessee, and Virginia. During January, 1865, only 32 effectives were present and the battalion disbanded. Captain John B. Dortch was in command.
