The Military Board of Kentucky was created at the outbreak of the Civil War by the Unionist dominated General Assembly.

The Board stripped the Confederate leaning Kentucky State Guard of its funds and supplies, giving them to Unionist Home Guard units. Magoffin was eventually demoted to a member of the board and later removed all together.
