Re: Suggested Reading
Well, I went trail riding yesterday morning in Buck Snort, TN., and when I got home, I got hit with stomach/intestinal flu............so, I am just coming back into the world of the living and was elated to see this thread. Some great listings and books. I see that Tommy mentioned one of my favorites in "Sherman's Horsemen". A few others that I would recommend would be:
a) "A History of Morgan's Cavalry" by Basil Duke
b) "The Campaigns of Gen'l. N. B. Forrest and Forrest's Cavalry" by Jordan and Pryor
c) "They Died by Two's and Ten's" by Kenneth Hafendorfer (This is a wonderful read about many of the small engagements in KY and TN by the cavalry that in many cases are lost to history. It is out of print and very hard to find. Grab one if you find it.)
