The Confederate States of America (CSA), commonly known as the Confederation, were established in 1861, announcing their separation (secession) from the Union, ie the United States of America. This event, as well as many others, also of considerable importance, led to the outbreak of the bloodiest war in the history of the United States, known as the American Civic War, which was fought in the years 1861-1865. Of course, both in the North and in the South, when the war broke out, the army was being built. In the case of the Confederate Army, one of the key formations was cavalry. As in the north, the CSA cavalry was organized into regiments, divided into companies of 100 people. Most often, a single regiment consisted of up to 10 companies. With time, along with the battles fought, these full-time positions drastically decreased and the regiment, after a year or two of war, could only account for 30-40% of the initial state. It is estimated that approximately 137 cavalry regiments were formed in the CSA during the Civil War. The main weapon of a Confederate cavalry soldier was a pistol, preferred more than a carbine. Colt or Remington revolvers were most often used. Most of the cavalrymen carried two pistols to the saddles. The main melee weapon was a saber, and a model was often used The American Pattern of 1860 Light Cavalry Saber. It is worth adding that for a large part of the Civil War, the Confederate cavalry clearly towered above its counterpart in the north - it was much better trained (especially when it comes to equestrian elements), had higher morale, used better combat tactics and was usually better commanded. It is enough to mention such a Calvary talent as General Jeb Stuart.
