ABOUT THIS BLOG:
A website focusing on Civil War cavalry, primarily oriented on the Union regular cavalry regiments. Will feature biographical sketches, discussions of engagements, unit histories, letters, journals, and a database of those who served in the regiments during the Civil War as I’m able to compile them.
I am a retired Army officer and amateur Civil War historian. I focus my studies on the Regular cavalry regiments because I served in one of them and because they haven’t received the in-depth coverage that their volunteer brethren have. My first book, The 6th U.S. Cavalry in the Civil War, partnered with Jimmy Jones, was released in 2013. I am currently working on projects concerning the 2nd U.S. Cavalry and the Reserve Brigade.
