Synopsis

Horses and mules served during the Civil War in greater numbers and suffered more casualties than the men of the Union and Confederate armies combined. Using firsthand accounts, the many uses of equines during the war, the methods by which they were obtained, their costs, their suffering on the battlefields and roads, their consumption by soldiers, and racing, mounted music and other themes are all addressed. The book is supplemented by accounts of the ""Lightning Mule Brigade,"" the ""Charge of the Mule Brigade,"" five appendices and 37 illustrations. More than 700 Civil War equines are identified and described with incidental information and identification of their masters.

Gene C. Armistead is a Marine officer veteran of the Vietnam War and is retired from management in the electronic components manufacturing industry. He is the author of several published articles and essays about Black Confederate soldiers, White Southern unionists, and Californians in the Civil War. He lives in Escondido, California, USA.
