Abstract

Numerous cavalry engagements during the first two years of the American Civil War found the mounted forces of the Army of the Potomac consistently inferior to their Southern counterparts. In frequent passages at arms the trooper in blue usually tasted not only defeat, but humiliation as well. The pages of Civil War history abound with accounts of such failure.
