10th  KY Partisan Rangers 
Johnson's Cavalry, CSA

Cornell University Library, working as part of a internet project known as the "Making of America" has put the entire 100 volume work Offical Record of the War of the Rebellion online. This refernce source is one the most important historical and orginal source records of the Civil War.  The web page lists and links to all of the refernces to the 10th Kentucky Partisan Rangers and Adam Johnson in the "OR" as it is known to Civil War researchers. I have added a short subject line describing what is related in the documents at each link and the date referred to.
