The horses that fought the battles.... Stonewall Jackson rode Little Sorrel at the battle of Chancellorsville. Jackson was wounded during the battle and pulled off Little Sorrel. Little Sorrel then wandered around on the battlefield until a soldier mounted him and rode him for days until they found out who the horse actually was. At the point he was turned over to a general who gave the horse back to Anna Jackson to live at her fathers farm. Winchester was ridden by General Sheridan in nearly every engagement in which he participated during the remainder of the Civil War, including the occasion of his ride from Winchester to Cedar Creek, Virginia, October 19, 1864, immortalized by Thomas Buchanan Read in his poem entitled, “Sheridan’s Ride.” After the Battle of Cedar Creek, the name of the horse was changed by General Sheridan from Rienzi to Winchester. Standing sixteen hands high and of Morgan blood, he was, in Sheridan’s words, “an animal of great intelligence and immense strength and endurance. He always held his head high, and by the quickness of his movements gave many persons the idea that he was exceedingly impetuous. This was not so, for I could at any time control him by a firm hand and a few words, and he was as cool and quiet under fire as one of my soldiers. I doubt if his superior as a horse for field service was ever ridden by any one.” The saddle, bridle, and other trappings shown on Winchester were used by General Sheridan. Comanche a horse ridden by Captain Keogh in the Battle of Little Bighorn, or "Custers Last Stand".After Keogh was killed, Comanche was found by Sergeant Milton J. DeLacey in a ravine where he had crawled, there to die and feed the Crows. He was found by soldiers later on after the battle and raised up and tenderly cared for. His wounds were serious but cared for. He carried seven scars from many bullet wounds. There are four back of the foreshoulder, one through a hoof, and one on either hind leg. On the Custer battlefield (actually Fort Abraham Lincoln) three of the balls were extracted from his body and the last one was not taken out until April 1877. Not sure who the horse is as there's not any info on the horse but he/she is in the Bardstown Civil War museum in Kentucky. A battlefield horse. Deserves his or her due for being in the fight. OK had to add this one. The horse Le Vizir. Not an American horse, BUT one of Napoleon's horse from 1808.
