"Civil War Regiments from Kentucky and Tennessee" provides concise regimental histories of the infantry and cavalry regiments and artillery batteries that fought for the Union from the Bluegrass and Volunteer states. Kentucky contributed over 51,000 white and 23,000 African-American troops to the Union, of which over 10,000 died while in service. Of the deaths, about one-quarter were killed in action or from wounds received in battle. Kentucky raised fifty-five infantry regiments, seventeen cavalry regiments, and 5 artillery batteries. Five regiments (3rd, 5th, 6th, 25th, and 17th) are listed in William F. Fox's Three Hundred Fighting Regiments found in "Regimental Losses in the American Civil War." Tennessee provided over 31,000 white troops to the Union cause, losing nearly 7,000 in dead--744 from combat-related wounds. Nearly ten regiments of cavalry, nearly ten regiments of infantry, and a few artillery batteries mustered into Federal service from Tennessee, despite the state having seceded.
