49th Regiment Kentucky Infantry
Knox and Whitley County Partins in the Civil War
The 49th Regiment Kentucky Volunteer Infantry was organized at Camp Nelson, Kentucky, under Colonel John G. Eve, This Regiment was originally recruited for the cavalry service but, prior to muster-in, viz: on December 14, 1863, the various detachments were consolidated into ten companies and the officers were duly commissioned from the date. All the companies and detachments were mustered into the United States service on the 19th day of September 1863, except two, one of which was mentioned in October 7, 1863, and the other November 3, 1863.
The Regiment marched as follows: It left Camp Nelson for Somerset, Kentucky, October 20, 1863; shortly afterwards two companies went to Camp Burnside, and one was put on duty at Waynesburg, Kentucky; The Regiment was moved from Somerset to Camp Burnside on the 3rd and 4th days of January 1864, and on the 1st day of August 1864, it left Camp Burnside for Lexington, Kentucky, where it arrived on the 6th and on the 17th it was sent to Louisville, with the view of being marched against Adam Johnson's command; but it was recalled and returned to Lexington on August 21, 1864; It remained on duty, chiefly in the central portion of the State, until December 26, 1864, when it was mustered out at Lexington, Kentucky.
The veterans from this Regiment re-enlisted by Captain J.M. Cook, were transferred to 7th Kentucky Cavalry and constituted Co. L of this Regiment. Those re-enlisted by Captain Francis Catron were transferred to 1st Kentucky Cavalry.
