  • Larry, I'd be happy to look it over. Newcomer is a primary reference, but there are gaps in his history. Not surprisingly, he focused more from his personal perspective of events than from the perspective of the full battalion (and later the regiment). Were you aware that Cole only had three companies at HF? Co. B was still operating independently. By the way, there is a masters...

  • I'm interested... what are you reading that deals with Cacapon? I'm rather focused on that area lately with my work on Cole's Cavalry.

  • Excellent description... thank you Larry. I figured that there must have been more Union units involved considering the diverse range of regiments involved in the breakout. I need to look back at some of the details of the "exodus," but it seems to me that Cole's was at the head of the column.

  • Hello all! Just wanted to see if anyone knows the particulars behind the capture of Longstreet's ammunition train on 9/15/62. I know that Cole's Cavalry (1st PHB/Maryland Vol. Cav.) was the unit involved in bagging the train. Thanks! Robert Moore [Non-text portions of this message have been removed]

  • I want to say that most of the National Cemeteries, at least in Virginia, received the stone headstones sometime in the mid-1870s, but I can't say for certain exactly what year.
