During the intense, sprawling conflict that was the American Civil War, both Union and Confederate forces fielded substantial numbers of cavalry, which carried out the crucial tasks of reconnaissance, raiding, and conveying messages. The perception was that cavalry's effectiveness on the battlefield would be drastically reduced in this age of improved infantry firearms. This title, however, demonstrates how cavalry's lethal combination of mobility and dismounted firepower meant it was still very much a force to be reckoned with in battle, and charts the swing in the qualitative difference of the cavalry forces fielded by the two sides as the war progressed. In this book, three fierce cavalry actions of the American Civil War are assessed, including the battles of Second Bull Run/Manassas (1862), Buckland Mills (1863) and Tom's Brook (1864).

Includes more than 20 Illustrations of the author’s unit and commanders. “George Dallas Mosgrove was born in Louisville, Kentucky, in 1844, and enlisted in the Fourth Kentucky Cavalry Regiment as a private on September 10, 1862. Through service as a clerk and orderly in both regimental and brigade headquarters, he became familiar with the environment of officers and command. His eyewitness account illuminates the western theater of the Civil War in Kentucky, east Tennessee, and southwest Virginia. Mosgrove admits to a romanticism influenced by Sir Walter Scott in his description of the superiority of the officers and "some of the boys" in his regiment. At the same time, his narrative includes unadorned passages that depict with stark honesty the sordidness of war and man’s inhumanity. Mosgrove provides firsthand information about military actions at Blue Springs, Saltville, and elsewhere, and relates details of his participation in John Hunt Morgan’s Last Kentucky Raid and the skirmish where Morgan was killed. Mosgrove’s highly entertaining account is a perceptive and informative retelling of the truth as he saw it.”-Print Ed.

Major Benjamin Hord, CSA wrote this novel sometime between 1865 and 1922 when he died. Since then his book lay unpublished among his family's records until this year of publication. In it, he develops a fascinating and curious tale of a young cavalryman's service during the Civil War, mostly in Missouri. It is a rare eyewitness depiction of the battles and skirmishes in which he fought. Hord uses his family's experiences during the war and those of his friend Nick Hardeman, as the setting for the story. Because he wrote his book over one hundred and twenty years ago, his engaging Victorian style lends unusual authenticity to the cavalry actions, as it does to the whole tale.
