   Calcav, John Singleton Mosby was made a colonel on December 7, 1864. But I do agree with you that his experiences were very different from those of John Hunt Morgan, and its hard to compare the two.

   Mosby commanded his own unit of partisans on his home turf. Morgan was colonel of the 2nd Kentucky Cavalry, raiding in Tennessee and Kentucky. After becoming a general, he raided into Indiana and Ohio, far from home. He later commanded the Department of Southwestern Virginia.
