Confederate Cavalry of the American Civil War, 1861–1865

15 mm Heritage Miniatures of Confederate Cavalry. These Rebels are mounted in fours on a 25 mm × 50 mm cavalry base of the Johnny Reb game system. Each base represents 80 officers and men.

The Confederate Army raised 137 cavalry regiments during the American Civil War. Each regiment had a nominal strength of 1000 cavalrymen, organised in 10 troops of 100 officers and men each. The actual campaign strength of a cavalry regiment fell far short of this number, however, due to manpower shortages and lack of horses. A trooper who lost his horse to illness, injury, or death, was placed on leave for 60 days in order to procure a new horse at his own expense. If he failed to do so, the proud cavalryman was transferred to the infantry.
