Sabres in the Shenandoah: The 21st New York Cavalry, 1863-1866
The 21st New York was in the thick of the Civil War in the Shenandoah Valley from January 1864 to the end of the war. The regiment fought against Confederate generals, guerrillas, and partisan rangers such as John Singleton Mosby. It fought in the Battle of New Market, accompanied David Hunter on his raid to Lynchburg, opposed Jubal Early in his 1864 Maryland offensive, and engaged in countless additional skirmishes in Virginia and West Virginia. In June 1865, the 21st was transferred to the Colorado territory for guard duty along the Overland Stage Route. It was mustered out there in August 1866. Sabres in the Shenandoah provides an almost day-by-day account of the men of the regiment and their battles, skirmishes, activities, and hardships.
