the offender was from the 8th Texas Cavalry - Terry's Texas Ranger's.....supposedly...
I recall the back (AND FORTH) raids at Wilson's Leak....including the 4PM gallop down the company street. the 10th MO Cavalry commander (Bob Howlett) was literally caught taking a nature call and was given the universal 'shhh' sign.....a few moments later they lit up Terry Crowder's HQ tent......
also the 5AM raid at Franklin of the CSA camp
company street galloping is probably not the safest activity in the world......no matter what time of day or how well scouted (for tent lines, holes, etc.) the sitchy-ation are.
Horniste! Blas das Signal zum Angriffe!
