tains, so far as it has been possible to get the in­       Many of the officers on this roster subsequently
formation, the names of officers who were born          served in the Union or the Confederate armies
 in Kentucky and appointed from Kentucky; of             in the Civil War. Where this was the case, the fact
.officers who were born in Kentucky and appointed        is indicated, together with the rank the officer
from other States; and: of officers who were ap­         held in the later service. Where the fact is known,
pointed from Kentucky, but were born elsewhere.          the date of the death of officers is also given.
 General Don Carlos Buell was born in Ohio and
 was appointed to the army from Indiana; and,
 although he was a citizen of Kentucky for many
 years, and died, there, he did not settle in the
 State until long after the close of the Mexican
 War. His is the only case of the kind on this
 roster.
    f t is probably now impossible to get anything
 like a complete roster of native-born Kentuckians
 who were officers of volunteers in the Mexican
 War from other States. Perhaps half of those
 from Missouri were born in Kentucky, as were
 a great many of those from IlIinois and Texas,
 and, in a lesser degree, those from Arkansas, Ten­
 nessee, Indiana and Mississippi.
