Moderators: Please move this if necessary
I have been trying to conduct some research on the 11th Ohio Vol Cav that was stationed in the west during the civil war and trying to find out what school of instruction they used. I am hoping some of you may be able to help. The museum curators in this area have no idea what I am talking about and I don't know enough about Poinsett's or Cooke's to know definitively what they used.
I have tried searching in this and other forums but can’t seem to find exactly what I am looking for. Google has the basics but no specifics on who used what and when (exactly) the switch was made.
If I understand correctly, Poinsett’s was early war and Cooke’s was came in later, but I can’t seem to find actual dates, and units that used each one and when/how each unit “Converted”. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
I must admit I am fairly new and understand this might be a “green” question. And if so, please at least point me in the right direction on where to research. Thanks for your time ahead of time.
