The Seventh Kentucky Cavalry
Nashville, Tenn., Feb. 19.
Noticing that every rigment hereabouts have correspondents that keep "old folks at home" fully posted uop with the sayings and doing of their respective commands through the columns of the Louisville and Cincinnati papers, and, not having seen anything from this regiment, the 7th Kentucky Cavalry, I have taken the lierty to inform you that on Tuesday the members of company D presented their old captain, W.(William) W. Bradley (our new Major)and new Captain, Jesse Bryant, and new First Lieut. A. J. Jones, with "spick, span, bran new sabers, of costly pattern and elegant workmanship. The ceremony of presentation was conducted in approved style, the speeches being brief, "loyal" and appropriate. Although from the rebellious region of Harrison county, they are as fine officers as ever buckled saber-belts beneath shoulder-straps.
The health of our command is generally good. Our stay at this point is said to be limited, as we are going to the front. Our friends, however, must continue to address their letters to us at Nashville. If anything transpires in the way of a fight you will be duly advised be the UNDERSIGNED.
This was researched, typed and sent to me by Steven L. Wright, 984 Kings Way, Elizabethtown, Ky. 42701.
All three of the men mentioned in this article came from around Berry Station in Harrison County. Major Bradley subsequently became Commanding Officer of the 7th. He returned to Berry Station after the war. Would like to know more about them. Can anybody out there in Harrison land help me???
