Union cavalry increased as the war went on. Mainly due to the major commanders, who had all been infantry prior to the war, began to understand the importance of cavalry. It cost about 10 times as much to train and outfit a horse soldier as it did an infantryman, so they felt the money was better spent raising a regiment of infantry for the same price as a company of cavalry.
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
