Would anyone know what firearm the 22nd ky were issued or know where I can find such info?
Welcome to the group from middle Alabama. The 22nd was a Union Regiment that served among other places in the Vicksburg Campaign and perhaps the Kentucky Historical Society could help.
which army?Would anyone know what firearm the 22nd ky were issued or know where I can find such info?
Awesome, thank you so much! Doing alot of research for possible upcoming immersion event. The 22nd and the 5th ky csa ended up being pitted against eachother at the battle of middle creek ky. Many companies from both regiments were raised in the same region. One of largest instances of family against family in the war.
That would be great! Any info will be of help. I had a lot of family in the 39th and 14th Ky. I had one cousin in the 22nd, William James, he transferred to the 39th after his 50plus yr old father Abner joined. William died at Ashland hospital within a couple months of joining the 39th.
