Edward, a good book about the 2d Cav's last days as horse cavalry is F TROOP, THE REAL ONE - AS SEEN THROUGH THE EYES OF TROOPER JAMES V. MORRISON.

If you're interested in what life was like in the Regiment during its horse days, found

something last night you might like. It's a 1969 study about Fort Laramie Wyoming

in the 1870's and includes a lot of comments about the Regiment, mainly K Company - muster roll, daily calls, life in the barracks, equipment, furnishings, etc. The whole thing is online (and also ads to buy it).  To see it, google:  Fort

Laramie NHS, The Cavalry Barracks - Fort Laramie.   www.nps.gov/...fola//

barracks-hfs/index.htm  might also work.

This was the third design of the 2d Cavalry DUI, worn from 1924-1931. The sharp points on the ends of the bottom scroll again called for a redesign.
