Thanks for the response. It actually does clarify the issue of Co. D (of the Morgan's 2nd KY) which went on to associate with the orphan brigade versus Co. B (of Woodwards 2nd/15th). However, You say in a previous post that Woodward officially raised the 2nd (would be 15th) KY on Dec 9 1862. I have confirmed this date with other sources. You then went on to say that the 15th participated in West Tenn. raid of 1862 and fought at Parker's crossroads with Forrest.
In this post you say that he did not raise the 2nd/15th KY until January 1863 and it did not exist at the end of 1862.
May I ask for clarification on the details of the 2nd/15th. I have an ancestor who is recorded to have enlisted Dec. 9th 1862 at Williamsport TN with Woodwards 2nd/15th KY Cav. Co. B.
His brother enlisted in June-July 1862 and served in Woodwards 2nd Co. D with Morgan's raiders. You say when they were asked to enlist for 3 years, it was disbanded however a letter written by my ancestor claims that "the whole group immediately reenlisted". It then says by 1863 Co. D was under the command of Given Campell of Trigg County and then assigned under the command of Forrest and saw action at Lexington Jackson and Humboldt Miss.
