Regimental History
Third Infantry

Third Infantry. -- Cols., Thomas E. Bramlette, William T.
Scott Samuel McKee William H. Spencer, Henry C. Dunlap;
Lieut.-Cols. Daniel R. Collier, William A. Bullitt; Majs.,
Charles H. Buford, John Brennan.

This was one of the regiments organized at Camp Dick Robinson
in the summer of 1861. Government muskets having been brought
to Lexington, and there being danger that the secessionists
would seize them, a portion of the regiment moved to that
place, with a detachment of the 1st Ky. cavalry, in Aug.,

The regiment marched again to Lexington, Sept. 18, and on Oct.
1 returned to Camp Dick Robinson where it was mustered into
service Oct. 8. On March 18, 1862, it proceeded by steamer to
Nashville. It was then 900 strong.
