Civil War Soldiers - Bramlette

Bramlette, Thomas E., brigadier-general, U.S. Army, was born in Cumberland county, Ky., Jan. 3, 1817. He was educated in the county schools, studied law and was admitted to the bar, and in 1848 became state's attorney, resigning that office in 1850 in order that he might devote himself to his private practice. In 1856 he was elected district judge, but resigned in 1861 to enter the Union army. He raised the 3d Ky. infantry, was elected its colonel, and in April, 1863, became brigadier-general of volunteers. He resigned his commission the same year to become governor of Kentucky, to which office he had been elected on the Union ticket. He remained in office until 1867, and then resumed his law practice at Louisville. He died in Louisville, Jan. 12, 1875.
