Try and search Spanish American War

One result is the book "The Spanish American War 1901" and using the "read online" and a search of Kentucky within book has the following on page 451:"The command of Brigadier General J. P. Sanger at Mantanzas, Cuba when I visited the camp in the spring of 1899 consisted of two regular regiments and four volunteer regiments: 10th U.S. Infantry, 2nd U.S. Calvary, 8th Massachusetts, 12th New York, 160th Indiana and 3rd Kentucky.

Couple of more references to 3rd KY
Camp Collier, Lexington, KY (See Camps Bradley and Corbin)
Named after the Kentucky adjutant general at the time the war started.
Muster in site for 2nd and 3rd Ky. Vol. Inf. regiments. The 2nd left for Chickamauga, GA about May 25 and the 3rd on June 1, 1898.
At Tattersall’s Fairgrounds. Troops were housed in buildings including a stable according to the May 4, 1898 Lexington Daily Leader.
Lexington paper of May 1, 1898 refers to it as Tattersalls Sales Mart. "Huge Barns" used to quarter troops.
"Camp Miles, Lexington, KY (See Camps Hamilton, Mill Farm and Sanger)
Likely named for General Nelson A. Miles
September 5, 1898 Lexington newspaper indicates 3rd Kentucky, 4th Kentucky and 160th Indiana were camped here.
According to source (10), pages 26-27, Camp Miles was at the Wiel Farm, 3 miles from Lexington and 8 miles from Camp Hamilton."
