Civil War Era Soldiers
(1861 - 1865)

last updated July 25, 2004

Lawrence County residents initially were reluctant to take sides when the Civil War came to the area. But within a year, they had registered their support for the Union for a variety of reasons. Lawrence County soldiers who aligned with the Union cause were members of three regular organizations and a local militia unit. They were: 14th Kentucky Volunteer Infantry, 39th Kentucky Mounted Infantry, 40th Kentucky Mounted Infantry, and the 68th Kentucky Enrolled Militia (Home Guard). A Union fortress, Fort Bishop, was built atop the hill overlooking the city of Louisa.

On the Confederate side, many local soldiers enlisted in Captain William J. Fields "Fields Partisan Rangers" and the 10th Kentucky Cavalry Regiment commanded by Colonel George R. Diamond.

The war lasted 3 years, 11 months, 27 days and saw thousands of her sons and daughters perish. Evidence of Civil War Soldiers in Lawrence County has been recorded in Court Order Books, cemetery records, federal census, Pensioners Lists, pension application papers, and DAR records. It should be noted that soldiers who were recorded in Floyd County prior to 1822 but whose physical location actually fell within the boundaries of Lawrence upon her formation in 1822 are listed here. Also, evidence of soldiers found within the boundaries of early Lawrence County (before her redistribution to Carter (1838), Johnson (1843), Boyd (1860), Elliott (1869), and Martin (1870)) are also listed here. This information is compiled from various sources, and is not intended to be a complete account of the soldier's service. If you have record of an ancestor who was born in the county, lived in the county, filed a pension application in the county, or died and is buried in Lawrence County, please contact me so that the information may be added to this list.
