The American Civil War, or the War between the States, was fought between 1861 and 1865. It was perhaps one of the most defining and tragic chapters in American history. It is also known as one of the 'modern wars' with a grim preview of what was to come in future conflicts.
For the first two years of the American Civil War, Confederate cavalrymen ran circles around their blue-clad opponents. This tradition of mounted supremacy was established at the outset by one of the South's earliest horseback unit, the 1st Virginia Cavalry Regiment.
