The Fifteenth Kentucky in the Columbus Paper


From the Daily Ohio Statesman, January 29, 1862


[A report from the field] . . . The Thirteenth, one of the first regiments that organized in Ohio, is a well drilled regiment and well officered, but rather small. They have had a great deal of sickness and some pretty hard fighting, and, with Col. Smith for a leader, you can get on the Thirteenth. The Fifteenth Kentucky, a new regiment but lately in the field, presents a very fine appearance, and is a very industrious regiment, and composed principally of Germans.
