             Historical note 
             The 15th Kentucky Cavalry formed in the fall of 1862 and mustered into service at Paducah, Kentucky. Gabriel Nelter served as their initial Lieutenant Colonel before his death at Owensboro, Kentucky. Afterward, A. P. Henry became the commanding officer, but was captured at Spring Creek, Tennessee, in 1863. Major William Walker became senior officer and commanded until mustered out of service at Paducah, Kentucky in October 1863. The 15th cavalry engaged chiefly in scouting through the 1st district in western Kentucky and served as the only protection for the citizens of that section. The unit sustained losses at several skirmishes, including at Owensboro, Kentucky, and the battle of Spring Creek, Tennessee.
