With a cast of characters including Jeb Stuart, Nathan Bedford Forrest, and Robert E. Lee, this informative and well-received volume details the Confederate cavalry’s intrepid exploits during the Civil War. Among many action-packed tales are the stories of Forrest’s capture of Murfreesboro, Tennessee, Stuart’s long ride and late arrival at Gettysburg, and Wade Hampton’s daring raid to steal the Union army’s herd of beef.
William R. Brooksher and David K. Snider uncover the real stories behind these Confederate legends, writing with a flair for the romantic and debonair cavalrymen. Author John Macdonald calls Glory at a Gallop, a selection of the Military Book Club, a “well-researched, fascinating work.’
