2nd Kentucky Calvary. (Woodwards)

     There were two 2d KY Cavalry units, Morgan's/Duke's and Woodward's, and both were known as the 2d during the war. When the Kentucky Adjutant General's Report was published about 1915, they did not know what to do with the two units that were numbered "2d". Since Morgan and Duke were so well known, they listed their unit as the 2d and erroneously stuck Woodward's unit in as the "15th KY Cavalry". Woodward's unit was never known as the 15th.

     They also did this to Diamond's 10th KY Cavalry, which is listed in the book as the "14th KY Cavalry". Officially, Chenoweth's cavalry was the 15th KY Cavalry.

     Morgan's/Duke's and Woodward's regiments are both listed in the "Official Records" as 2d Kentucky Cavalry. Neither Woodward's or Diamond's regiments were ever renamed. They were simply listed incorrectly in the Adjutant General's report.
