50% of the mounted troops last year not only had the proper flintlock
pistols but musketoons as well. I can also say that I never saw any
of the Kentucky Light Dragoons (the only other group on the
field)equiped that way either. If my people are being classified as
ACW cavalry I would challenge anyone to to check out our kit from our
uniforms, accoutrements, tentage or handmade saddles. Last year we
resorted to sabres when our flintlocks failed in the rain.
