Excerpt from Modern Cavalry: Its Organisation, Armament, and Employment in War, With an Appendix, Containing Letters From Generals Fitzhugh Lee, Stephen D. Lee and T. L. Rosser, of the Confederate States Cavalry; And Col. Jenyns' System of Non-Pivot Drill in Use in the 13th Hussars

The improvements which have taken place of late years in the weapons of modern soldiers have ren dered necessary a certain amount of change in the tactics of the different branches of the service; and the following pages are written with the view of advocating certain alterations in the organisation, armament, and employment of cavalry in modern warfare.

The arguments adduced are based mainly upon the teachings of the late wars in America and Ger many, where for the first time breech-loading and repeating ri?es were used to any great extent. Of course many of the principles of cavalry operations are still the same as they have been for ages; on these points I have followed the rules laid down in the best authorities on the subject.
