Judson Kilpatrick - winning the hearts and minds of his men.
I wonder if they felt Custer was such an improvement?

Hi Larry, & Wombat,

You must mean Gen. "Kill" Patrick! He did have great sideburns, however!?

He was quite the controversial General & Politician, what say you!?

Whoever saw a dead cavalryman ?

Well, Kilpatrick certainly did !

It’s apparent from the article that Larry gives us that the cavalry, while spared the awful casualties suffered by the infantry, yet took its share of punishment in myriad little known clashes, like the one here.

In reconnaissance, or while attempting to pursue, or cover retreat, the cavalrymen earned their spurs.

Regards, Phil
