Raymond Smecker

  • 1600

The First Vermont Cavalry had 1,200 Morgan horses supplied for the Civil War and only about 200 of the original horses survived. This is the story of Brandy a Vermont Morgan horse, his owners, the First Vermont Cavalry, and the Emmitsburg Daughters of Charity and their involvement in the War, especially at the Battle of Gettysburg. It is also a wholesome love story—love for a woman, a horse, and for God and country. Historical fiction. (278pp. illus. Masthof Press, 2018.)
