" During the American Civil War (1861–1865), cavalry held the most important and respected role it would ever hold in the American military.[186][note 4] Field artillery in the American Civil War was also highly mobile. Both horses and mules pulled the guns, though only horses were used on the battlefield.[8] At the beginning of the war, most of the experienced cavalry officers were from the South and thus joined the Confederacy, leading to the Confederate Army's initial battlefield superiority.[186] The tide turned at the 1863 Battle of Brandy Station, part of the Gettysburg campaign, where the Union cavalry, in the largest cavalry battle ever fought on the American continent,[note 5] ended the dominance of the South.[188] By 1865, Union cavalry were decisive in achieving victory.[186] So important were horses to individual soldiers that the surrender terms at Appomattox allowed every Confederate cavalryman to take his horse home with him. This was because, unlike their Union counterparts, Confederate cavalrymen provided their own horses for service instead of drawing them from the government."[189]

Hoping to make a difference in the war for the South , farmer Westfield
saddled his best horse for the ride to enlist as a future Confederate
cavalryman , along with his personal charger , Westy.
