             Biographical note 
             Thomas Robert McBeath was born in Monticello, Kentucky, on March 18, 1839. He grew up in Leitchfield, Kentucky where he attended school. In spring 1861, he started studying law and by autumn he was recruiting members for the Kentucky Infantry. His regiment was organized at Rochester, Kentucky, on December 16, 1861. McBeath served as regimental quartermaster, holding that position until the unit was mustered out of service on March 29, 1865. After the war, McBeath practiced law and in August 1880 became a judge in the Sixth Judicial District in Kentucky. McBeath died in 1915. 
         
         
             Scope and Contents note

While camped in Kentucky and Tennessee, McBeath wrote the largest number of letters to his fiancee, Nannie Wortham.
