"… A cavalry regiment does not usually suffer a heavy loss in any one engagement; it is one here, two or three there – a constant attrition that is ever wearing away the substance; it is the aggregate that tells the story. The dead are scattered here and there, buried by the wayside where they fell. Few have been gathered into the national cemeteries, but they rest as well, and the same glory is with them, wherever they may sleep."

First Lieutenant and Regimental Adjutant

Simeon M. Fox
