The War Horse

I did my master's thesis on the United States Dragoons, the first regular mounted unit in the United States Army, so you might say I have more than a passing interest in war horses.

This post, from an excellent blog that I follow in my other life called Emerging Civil War, describes a beautiful monument outside the Virginia Historical Society dedicated to the horses of the Civil War. It's now on my must-see list, up there with the newly unveiled statue of Reckless at the Marine Corps Museum.
