This month’s e-version of Armor magazine has an excellent article on one of the companies of the 5th US Cavalry at the battle of Gaines Mill. It is entitled “A Hard Duty Given This Half of the 5th Cavalry,” by Donald McConnell and Gustav Person. The link for it is here. The authors do an excellent job of setting the table for the reader leading up to the battle, then provide a very detailed look at the battle and its aftermath for Company H, 5th US Cavalry. I found it a very entertaining and informative read.
