What unit do you represent? We can check the ordnance records to see what they carried.
For personal items, basically, the rule is "less is more."
Come back East in the fall of 2012/1862 and ride with us at Unison if you want to put the theory into practice: cross-country scouting and fighting across miles of dirt roads and fields, setting up camp in the dark, all on pristine Virginia ground that was actually fought over in 1862.
Hi hi I am interested in knowing about a specific unit as well despite what I already know about them I am interested in finding ordinance reports for unit known as the first Oregon cavalry they were formed in 1862 in Oregon for operations within the pacific nw to quell rebellion of both Indian and secesh they participated in the snake war with the first Nevada cavalry I have two quarter master reports for the initial year of 1862 and 64 but I can't find squat on anything Else on canteens leathers weapons haversacks saddles horse equipment I would like to confirm my information If anybody has any info I would like to know
