Confederate Cavalry West of the River by Stephen B. Oates

This classic story seeks to illuminate a little-known theater of the Civil War—the cavalry battles of the Trans-Mississippi West, a region that included Missouri, Arkansas, Texas, the Indian Territory, and part of Louisiana. Stephen B. Oates traces the successes and defeats of the cavalry; its brief reinvigoration under John S. "Rip" Ford, who fought and won the last battle of the war at Palmetto Ranch; and finally, the disintegration of this once-proud fighting force.

Oates tells the story of the not-so-famous Confederate Cavalry units that served west of the Mississippi River. He does a great job of tracing the history of these units from their birth until the war's end. A must read for serious students of the Civil War. The units of the Trans-Mississippi have not gotten the literary coverage that the more well known units in Virginia have received. Oates gives great insight into this area of the war.
