Would someone have an authenic list of standard arms that would be issued to a CSA Calvaryman? I have found various accounts of very different arms carried by calvarymen...I know of accounts of self supplied sawed off shot guns, muzzle loading rifles and a few multi shot rapid load magazine rifles as well as various types of pistols, daggers, and sabres.
Also were they issued mounts...or as I have found were some mounts as well as tack owned by the calvaryman and they were supposed to paid a monthly rate for the use of their mounts and tacks.
I have a hunch that every calvaryman was outfitted differently depending on his personal ability to furnish whatever equipment that he preferred.
Your replies are solicited. I have several relatives that served in Calvary Units raised within the State of Georgia.
