The 19th Ky, Infantry was recruited & organized at Harrodsburg [Mercer CO] Ky., in the fall of 1861, by Col. William J. Landrum & Lieut. Col. John Cowan & was mustered into service on the Jan. 2, 1862. They marched to Somerset, Ky. and engaged for some time in destroying the entrenchments of Gen. Zollicoffer and collecting property captured at the battle of Mill Springs. In April 1862 the regiment marched from Somerset to Cumberland Ford & assigned to Gen. Baird's brigade of Gen. George W. Morgan's division. It remained there until June & took part in the movements which resulted in the capture of Cumberland Gap. Sept. 1862 marched through the mountains of Eastern Ky to the Ohio River. Upon this march the troops suffered much for want of food subsisting chiefly upon meal grated upon the bottom of their mess pans.

The 19th was assigned to the division of the Army of Kentucky,commanded by Brig. Gen. A. J. Smith...marched to Memphis, Tenn. and formed part of Maj. Gen. Sherman's army which moved on Vicksburg via Chickasaw Bayou. Was in the battle of Chickasaw Bluffs 29 Dec. 1863. From there marched to Arkansas Post & participated in the battle which resulted in the capture of that place Jan. 10, 1863.

On the 15th of April 1863, the regiment marched down the east bank of the Mississippi river and crossed to the rear of Vicksburg, participating in the battles of Port Gibson, Champion Hills, Black River Bridge & the sieges of Vicksburg & Jackson. In the assault on Vicksburg on the 22nd of May, the 19th lost 60 in killed & wounded. The 19th was transferred to the Department of the Gulf and was with Gen. Banks on the unfortunate "Red River Campaign". At the battle of Sabine Crossroads, La, the 19th repelled five distinct charges before the enemy was enabled to break through it's lines. The losses in killed & wounded was high.

After the Red River expedition the 19th returned to Baton Rouge, La., where it remained until ordered to Louisville, Ky., where it was mustered out January 26, 1865. Col. W. J. Landram (of Garrard CO) was made a Brigadier-General in 1865.
