Lawrence County residents initially were reluctant to take sides when the Civil War came to the area. But within a year, they had registered their support for the Union for a variety of reasons. Lawrence County soldiers who aligned with the Union cause were members of three regular organizations and a local militia unit. They were: 14th Kentucky Volunteer Infantry, 39th Kentucky Mounted Infantry, 40th Kentucky Mounted Infantry, and the 68th Kentucky Enrolled Militia (Home Guard). A Union fortress, Fort Bishop, was built atop the hill overlooking the city of Louisa.

On the Confederate side, many local soldiers enlisted in Captain William J. Fields "Fields Partisan Rangers" and the 10th Kentucky Cavalry Regiment commanded by Colonel George R. Diamond.

The war lasted 3 years, 11 months, 27 days and saw thousands of her sons and daughters perish. Evidence of Civil War Soldiers in Lawrence County has been recorded in Court Order Books, cemetery records, federal census, Pensioners Lists, pension application papers, and DAR records.

Best regiment in the Twenty-Third Army Corps…" Maj. Gen. William T. Sherman

"I could take 100 such regiments as the 14th Kentucky, led by such men as Colonel Gallup, and capture Richmond or Washington City." General Joseph Hooker

"This gallant regiment detained the enemy an hour and a half, and only retired to the main line when ordered to do so, contesting stubbornly every foot of ground." Maj. Gen. John M. Schofield

"I had ordered Colonel Gallup to retire to the main line with his regiment if he was hard pressed, but he remained in position, until finding the attack a determined one, I ordered him peremtorily to fall back to the main line. The regiment came back slowly and in good order." Brig. Gen. Milo S. Hascall

"Col. George W. Gallup, Lieutenant Colonel Brown, and Major Thomas, of this regiment, deserve special mention in this place for their coolness, courage, and good management in fighting their commands and bringing them back to main line in good order." Col. Silas A. Strickland

These were some of the comments from the superiors of the 14th Kentucky regarding their actions at Kolb's Farm . It earned them a Special Order by Brig. Gen. Hascall, commending the 14th Kentucky for their gallant performance.
