This eagerly awaited new Civil War regimental history was written by one of the The Horse Soldier’s long time staff members, Robert B. Angelovich.

What began as a Civil War Round Table presentation developed into a never-before-published work on this volunteer cavalry unit. This definitive history honors Connecticut’s cavalrymen and presents the reader with their untold story framed within the broader context of the Civil War, all in a flowing style that is a pleasure to read.

Riding for Uncle Samuel provides a glimpse of that struggle from the perspective of young cavalrymen who participated in eighty-eight combat engagements during those four years of civil conflict.

Researched from mostly primary sources, i.e., soldier’s letters, diaries, journals, the Official Records and period newspaper postings, as well as other available works, this book recounts the story of the Nutmeg horse soldiers in their own words, uncensored and timely. It tells of the volunteers’ 1862 experiences fighting bushwhackers in western Virginia to service with George Custer’s Third Cavalry Division in 1864, and closes with the regiment escorting Ulysses S. Grant to Appomattox Court House to receive Robert E. Lee’s surrender, and finally their muster out in 1865.
