Kentuckians in Gray: Confederate Generals and Field Officers of the Bluegrass State

by Bruce S. Allardice and Lawrence Lee Hewitt, editors

From the publisher:
Kentuckians in Gray is a comprehensive collection of biographical sketches of key Confederate military personnel from the Bluegrass state. In addition to providing short profiles of lesser-known colonels, lieutenant colonels, and majors, the book vividly details significant players including Tyree H. Bell, Abraham Buford, Thomas James Churchill, and Richard Taylor. This work will be a standard reference for historians and Civil War buffs of the Bluegrass for years to come.

"Such a source on Kentucky's Confederate colonels, lieutenant colonels, and majors has never been published--until now."--James A. Ramage, Regents Professor of History, Northern Kentucky University, and author of Rebel Raider: The Life of General John Hunt Morgan
