The 36th Kentucky Mounted Infantry failed to recruit enough men to constitute a unit. The original Colonel recruiting for the 36th Kentucky – Archibald J. Alexander – went on to enlist on 9/26/63 in Louisville as Lt Col in the 11th Kentucky Cavalry. He resigned on 6/9/64.
He saw action in Kentucky, Tennessee, and Georgia. Among the list of engagements he saw included the Knoxville campaign, the Atlanta campaign, and Kennesaw Mountain.
The 11th Kentucky Cav lost a total of 262 men during service; 1 officer and 23 enlisted men killed or mortally wounded, 2 officers and 236 enlisted men died of disease.
