"The Forgotten Kentucky Regiments"

 

 United States Colored Troops from Kentucky

Because these troops were raised and armed by the United States rather than the

state of Kentucky, they were not considered for inclusion in The Union Regiments

of Kentucky (see the Appendix discussing the Colored Troops). We, however, beg

to differ and feel that they should be included regardless of who raised,

organized, and armed them - they were Kentuckians regardless of their race. The

Adjutant General's Report for the State of Kentucky lists the following

regiments among the U.S. Colored Troops from Kentucky.
