Compendium of the Confederate Armies: Kentucky, Maryland, Missouri, the Confederate Units and the Indian Units


This work is intended to be the companion set to Frederick H. Dyer's Compendium of the War of the Rebellion for the Confederacy. Civil War historians and genealogists with ties to Kentucky, Maryland, or Missouri will want to own this volume that details the activities of their units in the Confederacy. This volume is arranged by state; units organized directly by the Confederate authorities from various state companies; and those units from the Indian nations allied with the Confederacy. Chapters are included for artillery, cavalry and infantry units that are broken down by size: battalions, batteries, companies and regiments, as well as any other special designations such as Militia, State Troops and Volunteers. Entries include (as available) the name of the unit and any nicknames or other mistaken designations; a summary of the unit's organizational details: its date and location of organization, mustering into service, the number of companies for battalion organizations, armament for artillery batteries, surrenders, paroles, exchanges and disbandment or mustering out; the first commanding officer and an alphabetical listing of the other field-grade officers; the brigade and higher-level command assignments of the unit; a listing of the battles and campaigns the unit engaged in; and suggested further reading. A bibliography, battle indices, and name indices further enhance this excellent resource.
