From the History of the First
Kentucky Brigade: In May, 1862, Dr. Stanhope P.
Breckinridge, a young physician of Danville, reported to his
distinguished kinsman, General Breckinridge, then in command of the
Reserve Corps, and was assigned to duty as
assistant surgeon of the Fourth
Regiment. He was afterward
placed on duty with a cavalry command, and his health failing very soon,
he was assigned to hospital duty, in which he continued throughout the
remainder of the war.
