             Historical note 
             The Kentucky Militia was both the formal and informal system of military force in Kentucky. Virginians settling Kentucky in the late 1700s brought with them their militia system, organized by county with a colonel for each county. The Kentucky Militia primarily defended early settlers from Indian attacks, but also served a significant role during the War of 1812. Due to the decline in Indian wars, in 1854 the Kentucky General Assembly effectively abolished the state militia by passing a law requiring them to muster only every six years. The Kentucky Militia was replaced by the Kentucky State Guard (1860-1861 and 1878-1912). In 1912, the Kentucky State Guard was reorganized into the Kentucky National Guard.
