When American Cavalry Entered The Game At St. Mihiel

Recommended Posts

An interesting picture from a magazine, I believe. But not sure if it is a fantasy piece, as I can't find any US cavalry charge for WW1.

 

Any thoughts?

Lol yes quite a fantasy piece, even the provisional squadron ( only ones mounted) were on white convalescing horses provided by the french! but I still like the passion..

I am presently working on a publication dedicated to the cavalry regiments that served in France with the AEF and AFG 1918-1923

any assistance with the sharing of items or information would be appreciated and will be given full credit.

Ha, I picked it up mainly for the artwork. Going to have it framed and put up with the rest of the WW1 era cavalry items I have. Fantasy or not I like the look of it.

Yes, a bit fanciful. It may be based on the accomplishments of F Troop, 2nd Cav in the Meuse-Argonne. They captured a German artillery battery as they were trying to limber up. Don't discount the efforts of the Provisional Squadron. They may have been ad hoc, and not well mounted, but they did some really good Cavalry work in the Meuse-Argonne.
