This is the story of two remarkable men, both natural-born cavalry leaders of great courage, who shared similar traits. Their Civil War legacies were destined to be connected in a series of battles-beginning with Brandy Station where Custer's star rapidly rose; at Gettysburg where Stuart's star became tarnished, and continuing to Yellow Tavern where Stuart was killed. Clashes of Cavalry takes an innovative approach to chronicling the lives of these two Civil War giants by not only depicting their lives and exploits individually, but also by examining the role of each in specific battles in which they both participated. Thom Hatch is a freelance writer and historian. He is the author of Custer and the Battle of the Little Bighorn: An Encyclopedia and The Encyclopedia of the Alamo and the Texas Revolution. His next book, The Custer Companion, will be published by Stackpole in Fall 2002.
