307 printed pages
Follow the Cadets of the Citadel and Arsenal from the firing on the Star of the West on January 9, 1861 through their engagement with Federal troops at Williamston on May 1, 1865. Be with them when their academic routines are interrupted by military service. Then, watch them as they “see the elephant” in repulsing the Yankees at Tulifinny Creek.

Join the “hotspurs” as they walk out of the South Carolina Military Academy in mid-June 1862 to form their own cavalry company, the Cadet Rangers, Co. F, 6th SC Cavalry. Bide with them as they engage in routine patrolling along the South Carolina coast until their own baptism of fire at John’s Island in February 1864. Then, journey with the Rangers to Virginia where they lead a cavalry charge at Louisa Court House and hold the crucial angle the following day at Trevilian Station. Follow the arduous campaigning in Virginia and their return to South Carolina in early 1865 to assist in the attempt to repel Sherman’s hordes.
