8th Kentucky Infantry (CSA)

I have researched the 8th Kentucky Regiment Infantry and have information on the 68 men who died of disease here at Camp Alcorn during the winter of 1861-1862.

If anyone thinks they have an ancestor of the 8th Kentucky Infantry that may have died of tuberculosis, measles, typhoid fever, etc., here in Hopkinsville please let me know.

I will send you any part or all of the information our SCV camp has compiled on this aspect of the 8th Kentucky Infantry.
