From the Philadelphia Inquirer, June 12, 1863. Little did they know what was in store for the AOP mounted arm in the near future.

Hi Larry,

Great article on the evolution of the Union Cavalry during that part of the Civil War. My late father John, 1st US Cavalry, WWII would have approved.

Happy Father's Day, Dad!
& thanks Larry,

M.D. It's about time for daily reports on events in the Gettysburg campaign. You ready?
