This is an excellent read for anyone interested in Civil War history or the US Cavalry. I hadn’t heard about Grierson’s Raid, but upon reading this book, I can see that it played a key role for the Union.
The Real Horse Soldiers: Benjamin Grierson’s Epic 1863 Civil War Raid Through Mississippi by Timothy B. Smith
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Super informative! I loved it! Many resources are also provided for readers who are interested in either Grierson’s Raid or the Civil War. He may seem like an unlikely candidate for the raids, considering that he was a musician before he became a soldier. I enjoyed the maps and detail on strategy. Definitely recommend to anyone interested in the US Cavalry or US Civil War history.
