Right now I'm reading two books. One is Kenneth W. Noe's "Perryville: This Grand Havoc of Battle", an outstanding work on the above-mentioned battle.  I am also reading "Yankee Cavalrymen: Through the Civil War with the Ninth Pennsylvania Cavalry" by John W Rowell. This book, published in 1971 is hard to find new. I had to buy a used library copy I was lucky to get.

The Ninth Pennsylvania Cavalry Regiment, also known as the Lochiel Cavalry, fought throughout the war in the Western Theater including at Perryville. As a fan of Major General Cleburne, I am killing two birds with one stone as the Ninth often fought in battles in which Cleburne also participated  such as Perryville and Chickamauga.

While other Pennsylvania cavalry regiments fought in the Eastern Theater, the Ninth saw no action in the east, unless one considers Northa nd South Carolina to be the east or southeast.
