Rank/duties: Cook
Description: "negro"
Unit: Company M, 3rd Kentucky Mounted Infantry
Source(s): CSR

Enlisted at Clinton, KY, in 1864. Rode with Forrest.

Flag of the 3rd Kentucky Mounted Infantry-

How did he enlist in Kentucky when the state was controlled by the Union?-
"By 1864, the regiment's strength was severely depleted. The 3rd Kentucky Infantry was ordered to report to General Nathan Bedford Forrest. Horses were unavailable, so the men followed Forrest on foot....On March 15, 1864 Forrest moved north toward Paducah, Kentucky. Three miles from Paducah they encountered Union pickets and pushed them back to their camp on the outskirts of town. Under fire from a nearby fort, the Kentuckians moved through the streets of Paducah. The fort was discovered to be impenetrable, and a retreat was ordered....Forrest soon returned to Mississippi where the regiment was engaged at the Battle of Brice's Crossroads. At some point in the campaign to Kentucky, the regiment was mounted, becoming the 3rd Kentucky Mounted Infantry."
