* NOTE:  These images were taken from the 1895 Membership Annual of the Confederate Veteran Assn. of Kentucky (5th Edition, Lexington).  In the great majority of cases, the images in this book have been altered from originals by having uniforms drawn onto them  ...  they normally do not show original uniforms.  The exceptions to this may be the images of James H. Gregory and Richard Worsham, 2nd Kentucky Infantry, and J. W. Ellington, 5th Kentucky Infantry.  (The image of Capt. William Peter Bramlette, 4th Ky. Inf., is apparently a pre-war image, showing either a Regular Army (Mexican War) or militia uniform.)
