Abstract:

"Many accounts of the Civil War battles, armies, and key figures have been written over the years, but none has looked at the bloodiest war in our nation's history through the eyes of the cavalry. The horse soldiers in the Civil War are often referred to as the last of the cavaliers, men who valued their honor as much as their cause. In this sweeping saga, George Walsh brings to life anew the gallant horse soldiers of the North and South, showing in dramatic detail how their raids and expeditions affected the outcome of the war and how their fortunes waxed and waned." ""Those Damn Horse Soldiers" reveals some amazing stories behind some of the Civil War's most renowned cavalry commanders. Walsh also explores some of the cavalry's lesser-known personalities, from the partisan John Mosby, whose men rarely wore uniforms and in some instances were hung by the Federals as outlaws, to George Stoneman, whose errant ride before Chancellorsville opened the way for Stonewall Jackson's flank attack."--Jacket.
