Biographies of the Men of the 39th Kentucky Infantry

Biographical and Service Information for the Men of the 39th Kentucky Mounted Infantry

<center><h1>Biographies</center></h1>

Below you will find biographical information for some of the veterans of the 39th Kentucky Mounted Infantry. For some of the men, the biographical information is rather substantial. For others there may only be some very brief post-war information. We have some sources on hand that will permit some new biographies, but those are still under construction or consideration. Some information that we have on hand is downright unflattering and, for that reason, we shall probably not include that material here on the website. We'll save that for the book! Please be patient. We are adding new material on a daily basis. Check back with us after a while and you'll see some very significant changes. If you have any information or photographs you would like us to add to the website, please feel free to share them with us. You will retain the ownership rights to your materials; all we ask is permission to share what you may have with others via this website. We are dedicated to preserving and disseminating the history of this very interesting regiment and appreciate any help we receive in promoting that goal.
