Hi Larry,

I kind of find this article one sided & comical in a way. With the author describing the Confederate Cavalry, "gallant, having Confederate style" while insinuating that the Union riders were fleeing cowards!" My GGG Grandfather Andrew, of the 4th Michigan Cavalry would have found this 1 sided author, funny!

Talk about a homer!
