HISTORY OF THE ORPHAN BRIGADE. 735 FRANK McKINNEY, Kentucky, fought at Hartsville and Stone River. LEVI MAINS, Kentucky, fought at Hartsville and Stone River. SAMUEL MAINS, Kentucky. " If any one man of the company," says his captain, "deserves more particular honor for what he did than another, this was the man. He was crippled by white-swelling early in life. One of his arms was so imperfect that he could not execute the manual, and one of his legs was very badly injured; yet, he stood up to hard marching and hard fighting better than many men who were whole and sound, and when he could march no longer, he stayed with the wagons and helped to cook." He fought at Hartsville, Stone River, Chickamauga, Mission Ridge, and on the campaign of 1864 till his crippled leg gave out, when he did faithful duty on the cooking detail till August. He then reentered the ranks, and fought both days at fonesboro', and he also took some part in the operations after the command was mounted.
