With 25 years of research for the "Boys From Lake County," and having edited every word of the other 5 books, we know a lot, but likely not everything. We'll try to answer any question about the 73rd and 51st Indiana Regiments. or Cos. D & E, 1st Middle Tennessee Cavalry. If we don't have an answer, we'll try to point you toward the proper information.
If you have an ancestor who fought in the 73rd or 51st Indiana Regiments, and Company D & E of the 1st Middle Tennessee Cavalry, or are interested in genealogy give us permission to list your name, unit, and email address in space on this web site.
