It was clear and cold. The order for the march was "at a fast walk," but every experienced cavalryman knows that the letter of such an order can be obeyed only by those in advance.

New. Printed and bound by Wayne and Judy Dasher. 282 p. THIS IS A REPRINT, NOT THE ORIGINAL PUBLICATION. TEXT ONLY. Doubtless many things have been omitted that ought to have been included and some things written in that it might have been better to leave out. These are matters of personal judgment and taste, and no man s judgment is infallible. The chapters have been written in intervals of leisure during a period of more than twenty years. The one on Cedar Creek appeared first in 1886; the Gettysburg campaign in 1889; Brandy Station, Kilpatrick s Richmond expedition, the Yellow Tavern campaign, Buckland Mills, Hanovertown and Haw s Shop, the Trevilian Raid and some other portions have been prepared during the current year 1908. While memory has been the principal guide, the strict historical truth has been sought and, when there appeared to be a reasonable doubt, the official records have been consulted, and the writings of others freely drawn upon to verify these recollections. -The Author. Approx. 8 x 9. Surname index. Color of cover may vary.
