This chapter examines the Confederate army's Kentucky campaign during the period from July to October 1862. This campaign proved to be another failure for Humphrey Marshall, even with Edward O. Guerrant serving on his staff. The Confederate army was defeated because the Kentuckians did not provide the support that Marshall and Guerrant expected. Both Marshall and Guerrant grew increasingly dissatisfied with their personal civil wars and spent the following months contemplating resignation.
