(SOLD OUT!) Supplying the Army with Horses
Time & Location
About The Event
Enjoy dinner and listen to the amazing story of the extreme trouble that the US Army had in keeping its cavalry supplied with healthy and capable horses during the American Civil War. From a shortage of horses that arguably lead to Caspar Collins death out west, to the millions of horses needed to preserve the union in the east; those tasked with finding healthy horses had a hard job.
Join us for this rare opportunity to host one of the leading historians of American Cavalry movements during the American Civil War, Bob O'Neill.
Bob O’Neill grew up in Detroit, Michigan, before moving to Northern Virginia in 1977. He worked as a patrol officer and detective for the Fairfax County Police Department for 26 years, retiring in 2002. He currently provides training for law enforcement agencies through Moser Training Solutions of Colorado Springs, Colorado.
A graduate of American University, Bob has published two books – Small but Important Riots, The Cavalry Battles of Aldie, Middleburg and Upperville in 1993 and Chasing Jeb Stuart and John Mosby, The Union Cavalry in Northern Virginia from Second Manassas to Gettysburg in 2012.
He has also published articles in several magazines, including Blue & Gray, Gettysburg Magazine and Little Big Horn Associates Research Review. His most recent article for Blue & Gray covers Gen. George Crook’s early 1876 campaigns against the Sioux and Cheyenne, including the battles at Powder River and Rosebud Creek.
He has guided numerous tours of the cavalry battlefields in the Loudoun Valley, as well as several Custer related tours in Montana, Wyoming and Kansas. He is currently working on a complete revision of his first book, and runs smallbutimportantriots.com, a Civil War cavalry website.
