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.
Here is a picture of Swoop.
I was there from 1984-1987 in I Troop Maintenance with Terry Skoglund, David Vernon, Mike Layton, Mark Gwartney, Jame Buzbee, Kelly Ransonette, Mark Cervantez and others! Really Miss them all!

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.
