From the Louisville Courier-Journal, April 19, 1862
The commissioned officers of the Fifteenth Kentucky regiment, now at Fayetteville, Tenn., under the command of Col. Curran Pope, have unanimously petitioned W. G. Halpin, Captain of company K, in said regiment, to resign, because of a slanderous letter written by him to the Cincinnati Enquirer.
We understand that Capt. Halpin’s letter was a very base one, and that officers of like rank with himself in the regiment, denounced him as a calumniator and a coward. And he stood it.
