  • Notes 
    • Archibald served as a second lieutenant with Company H, 54th Regiment, Kentucky Infantry, for the Union forces. Previously, he had been a sergeant in Company D, 10th Kentucky Cavalry. The 10th Kentucky Cavalry was raised by Colonel Joshua Tevis, and organized at Maysville during the summer of 1862. That section of the state had already put six infantry regiments in the field. In July, August and September the 10th was at Covington. At that time the invasion of Kentucky by Generals Bragg, Kirby Smith and Humphrey Marshall occurred, and the 10th was with the advance, which protected the country about Covington. It did not encounter the enemy prior to the battle of Perryville. After that battle, October 8th, the Confederates retiring from Kentucky, the 10th participated in the pursuit, following General Humphrey Marshall's men through the mountains, capturing prisoners, horses and arms. It remained on duty in Kentucky during the principal part of its service, though in the work of driving the enemy from the state it once entered Tennessee and was once in Virginia.

      The 54th Kentucky Mounted Infantry, Union Army, was organized at New Castle, Kentucky, in September, 1864 under special authority from the War Department. The difficulties attending the recruiting and organization of this regiment were great, owing to the frequent raids by guerillas and the constant presence of predatory bands in the vicinity of its camp. It was mounted and performed duty in various portions of Kentucky, and by the energy displayed by its officers soon dispelled the guerillas from the section of the country in which it was stationed. On the second Saltville expedition in Virginia, the 54th lost many men by exposure to the extreme cold weather. I t participated in the battles of Clinch River, Marion and Saltville Virginia, besides various skirmishes and minor engagements. It was mustered out at Louisville on September 1, 1865

      After the war, he was a shoe maker. In 1880, he was an express manager in Huntington, West Virginia.
