1865 Crittenden Co, KY Militia List The Militia in Kentucky dates back practically to the formation of the Commonwealth. Originally, the militia was to provide safety from the attack of Indians. Those eligible for the milita were men between the ages of 18 and 45, but ministers, public officials, ferry keepers, doctors, Quakers and various others were exempt from service. The militia was to muster periodically and practice defense tactics. The earliest known muster field in what is today Crittenden Co was located before 1820 near the junction of U.S. 60 (Sturgis Road) and Flynn's Ferry Road and was known as "Calvert's Field." In the 1840's the officers of the 123d Regiment of Kentucky Militia requested the absolution of the militia. On 5 Mar 1860, an act for the re-organization of the Kentucky Militia [Home Guards] was passed. In 1862 an act of the Legislature provided for the drafting of the militia whenever necessary to raise troops for the use and defense of the state. As Kentucky was technically a "neutral" state, the militia members during the Civil War, were mainly Union men. Some members, however, did leave and join the Confederate Army. The Militia Lists for Crittenden Co cover the years 1861-1876. Similiar lists are available for Livingston and Caldwell counties. 1865 Crittenden Co, KY Militia List Transcribed from "Militia Lists" in the Crittenden Co., KY County Clerk's Office, Marion, KY.
