|About the Book|
The history of vital Confederate cavalry regimentThis history of a famous and dashing cavalry regiment of the Confederate forces during the American Civil War was authored by a serving officer who became the regiments adjutant. It concerns Baxter Smiths 4th Tennessee Cavalry as distinct from another-which bore the same number-under Colonel Stearn. Previously published as A Brief History this account paints a vibrant picture of the regiment on campaign and on the battlefield in such detail as only one among its ranks could provide. We join the horsemen of the South at Chickamauga, on Wheelers Raid, in Tennessee, Georgia, Virginia, South and North Carolina in several actions. Included within this book is an account of Braggs Kentucky Campaign by Baxter Smith-the regiments commander.
