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.

  • 1st Regiment, Kentucky Cavalry (Helms') (Confederate)
    Organized during the late summer of 1861 and its companies were mustered into Confederate service in October.
    Because of its difficult service in Kentucky during September and October, 1862, it was reduced to a battalion and assigned to the 3rd Kentucky Cavalry.
    The field officers were Colonel Benjamin H. Helm; Lieutenant Colonels J.W. Griffith, H.C. Leavell, and Thomas G. Woodward; and Majors John W. Caldwell and N.R. Chambliss.
  • 1st Regiment, Kentucky Infantry (Confederate)
    Organized during the summer of 1861 for a one year term of enlistment. In August the 1st (Duncan's) Kentucky Battalion merged into the regiment. In April 1862, it was placed in D.R. Jones' Brigade, Army of Northern Virginia.
    When its term of service ended, it disbanded.
    The field officers were Colonel Thomas H. Taylor, Lieutenant Colonels Edward Crossland and William P. Johnston, and Major Benjamin Anderson.
