not unlike those in the East, except that the field of operations extended over five States instead of two and that numerous bands of independent cavalry or mounted riflemen under enterprising leaders like Forrest, Morgan, Wharton, Chalmers, and Wheeler of the Confederate army, for two years had their own way. The Union generals, Lyon, Sigel, Pope, Rosecrans, and others, loudly called for more cavalry, or in lieu thereof, for horses to mount infantry. Otherwise, they agreed, it was difficult tgetting your horse ready for inspection? The dark-coated animals did not show the dirt so much. Ever-busy troopers at drill: Union cavalry in winter quarters The swiftly moving Confederate troopers, under dashing leaders like Stuart and Wheeler, allowed the heads of the Union cavalry not a moment of peace. When infantry went into winter quarters they could live in comparative comfort and freedom from actual campaigning until the roads became passable again for their heavy wagon-trains
rmy at Murfreesboro in December, 1862. General Joseph Wheeler, Chief of Cavalry, with one division, nother at Nolensville shared the same fate at Wheeler's hands, and at two o'clock on the morning of guarded by blockhouses at vulnerable points, Wheeler joined Johnston with the remnant of his men. e command. Blockhouses garrisoned against Wheeler's cavalry In 1863 an attempt to supplementrrest was in full command on the right, while Wheeler, six miles away, covered the Confederate left whose corps occupied the latter place, while Wheeler remained in command of the cavalry with Braggfront of Chattanooga. When Bragg consulted Wheeler in regard to an expedition north of the Tenne to break Rosecrans' lines of communications, Wheeler informed him that few of the horses were ablek, I was on the point of remounting, when General Wheeler rode up and ordered me to get out of that per man for several days in succession.

ders in this fashion. An aide or courier could not get through the crowded highway or ride through the thick underbrush and woods on either side. The message was, in effect, a call for a volunteer to go on a special errand. My messmate, Lieutenant Jack Weatherley, who was killed soon after at Big Shanty, rode with me to the head of the column where, in the darkness, I made out a number of men, presumably officers and aides, some mounted and some on the ground. The general in command — Wheeler or Martin — asked if I were willing to go inside the foe's lines. I replied I would go provided I could wear my uniform, but not as a spy. He said: You can go as you are. I want you to find a detachment of cavalry which has been sent around the right of the enemy's lines, and which by this time should be in their rear, about opposite our present position. It is important that they be found and ordered not to attack, but to rejoin this column by the route which they have already traveled.
important battles, the cavalry of the West did desperate fighting and, considering its numbers, was not lacking in efficiency. The cavalry which General Sherman assembled for his Atlanta campaign numbered about fifteen thousand sabers, organized into four divisions, and it participated with credit in all the celebrated movements and engagements of Sherman's army between May and August, 1864. Protecting the rear and preventing the destruction of the Nashville and Chattanooga Railroad by Wheeler's enterprising cavalry, some Union cavalry under Rousseau remained at Decatur until by a rapid and circuitous march around Johnston's Confederate army, in which he destroyed immense quantities of stores and damaged several railroads, Rousseau joined Sherman near Atlanta. After the fall of the latter city, a cavalry division of over five thousand men under Kilpatrick, accompanied Sherman on his famous march to the sea. Up to this time the activities of the Union cavalry in the Southwest,
ritt, Fitz Lee, Pleasonton, Hampton, Lomax, Butler, Wheeler, Custer, Forrest, Grierson, Morgan, Kilpatrick, andr broke out, and it was a matter of Lieutenant-General Joseph Wheeler, C. S. A. Commander of Confederate forces in more than a hundred cavalry battles, General Wheeler well deserved the tribute of his erstwhile oppond with distinction until he was retired. General Joseph Wheeler One of the most versatile soldiers of the Civil War was Joseph Wheeler, Lieutenant-General, C. S. A., Brigadier-General, U. S. A., and in the opinion the war developed. President Davis said that General Wheeler displayed a dash and activity, vigilance and cois biographers (Rev. E. S. Buford) states that: General Wheeler has commanded in more than a hundred battles, m wounded. At the outbreak of the war with Spain, Wheeler was appointed a major-general, U. S. V., and duringworth: In the event of war with a foreign country, Joe Wheeler is the man to command the cavalry of our army.
