The Revolution, the War of 1812, the Early Frontier; 1776-1850. With 11 color plates.
This is the first volume of a four-volume work. The total work represents the culmination of more than twenty years of painstaking research. It is an exhaustive delineation, in words and pictures, of every aspect of the attire and equipment of that most exciting of all United States military forces the cavalry.
Volume I covers the Revolutionary period, with a detailed account of the "sires" of the United States Cavalry, the Continental Light Dragoons. Then come the War of 1812 and the formation of the United States Mounted Ranger Battalion, and later the United States Dragoons.
"Steffen, a horseman and an artist, analyzes the bits and pieces of gear with which the horse soldier of the period was equipped and clothed. There are 96 line drawings and nine uniform color plates, all first-class work. . . . Highly recommended." - Library Journal.
"Randy Steffen's The Horse Soldier is indeed a definitive reference. Artists, museum curators, collectors, writers, historians, and exhibit preparers concerned about the historical accuracy relative to the uniforms, arms, and equipment of the United States Cavalry will find these volumes indispensable." - Colorado Magazine.
"This book is highly accurate, painstakingly done, and is representative of all of Steffen's work. It is as nearly perfect as history permits." - In Wyoming.
"Both the text and illustrations of this handsome volume are as authentic as care and intelligence can make them." - Choice.
