Abstract:

Cavalry units had the ability to move quickly from place to place. At first, they mostly were used as intelligence gatherers. As the Civil War went on, they shocked the enemy with hit-and-run attacks, destroyed railroad tracks, cut telegraph wires, and blocked supplies and communications from reaching enemy troops. In 1864, cavalry played decisive roles in several key battles. Confederate general Nathan Bedford Forrest and his cavalry carried out damaging guerrilla raids on Union troops in Mississippi and Tennessee throughout 1864. Forrest and his men often came out of nowhere, surprising soldiers on the Union supply line with bold attacks. The raiders seized wagons, horses, weapons, and supplies. They set fire to what they couldn't grab and rode away as quickly as they came.
