[civilwarwest] Re: 1st Confederate Cavalry, Company a,b,c,d & e
- Good Evening, I have been looking for other folks interested in this CSA Cavalry Unit. This unit was formed from recruits from West Kentucky and Tenn. This unit was fromed in the summer of 1861, was in winter camp at Camp Beauregard in Graves Co., extreme West Ky. The commander was Maj. Henry Clay King, unit was also known as "Hellhounds". Anyone with knowledge or interest are invited to respond.

What a fantastic library. I agree with your perspective on Cozzens i.e. Union slant. I am currently re-reading No Better Place To Die and made that very comment in my notes. :) Are you aware of a more rounded perspective? What is your take on Thomas Connelly's AoT books? I have heard positive reviews.
your obedient servant,

Brian, I hope this list will get you started, all of these books are very good and are about the best out there on the various topics. Cozzen's books have a Union slant in the their point of view, but are excellent all the same. I highly recommend Daniels' book on Shiloh, and Arnold's book on the Vicksburg Campaign. Bearss' trilogy is not for the faint hearted. It is very authoritative, but can be tedious at times. If you want to know the exact location of a regiment during the VB campaign, consult Bearss. Let me know if you need anything else, Dameron
