10th Partisan Rangers
10th Regiment Partisan Rangers was organized
behind Federal lines during the spring and summer of 1863. Many
of its members were recruited in Oldham and Crittenden counties.
The unit saw action in Kentucky and Tennessee and acted as a guide
for General J.H. Morgan on his raids into Indiana and Ohio. Later
some of the men returned home, and a detachment surrendered at
Paducah, Kentucky, in May, 1865. Colonel Adam R. Johnson, Lieutenant
Colonel R.M. Martin, and Major Washington G. Owen were in command.
