Numerous sources and contributors have combined to make this history archive what it is. To give proper credit to all would be near impossible for my limited time and resources and would bring to a halt any further work on the site.
The majority of the material used in the creation of this site is from two sources, “SECOND UNITED STATES CAVALRY – A HISTORY” and “ONE HUNDRED YEARS WITH THE SECOND CAVALRY”.
SECOND UNITED STATES CAVALRY – A HISTORY The Ghosts of Patton’s Third Army
Compiled, edited and published by Historical Section, Second Cavalry Association
A. L. Lambert, Major, Cavalry
G. B. Layton, Captain, Cavalry
Illustrations by Walter Gerling, Staltach, Bavaria
Printed by Munchner Graphische, Kunstanstalten Gmbh. (Bisher F. Bruckmann), Munich, Germany, 1947
This book started the whole site. My dad picked up a copy when he was with 2ACR in Germany during the early 1950’s and it has been with me my entire life. When the 2d Cavalry Association offered me the opportunity to create this website under the guidance and tutelage of Isaac Golding, then Association Adjutant, I used this book as the cornerstone. I wanted to finish the WWII era first while there were still some of the veterans around to read it, and it has proven to be a treasure trove with all the veteran and family contacts through the website over the years.
ONE HUNDRED YEARS WITH THE SECOND CAVALRY
By Joseph I. Lambert, Major, Second Cavalry
Copyright 1939 by Commanding Officer, Second Cavalry, Fort Riley, Kansas
Capper Printing Company, Inc.
This book has been invaluable for filling in the first one hundred years of the 2d Cavalry’s history, and has also produced a wealth of veteran and family contacts through the website from pre-WWII when the Regiment was still horse mounted.
We acknowledge and appreciate the work of these individuals and the many others who were involved in the compilation of this material. Notations will be posted on articles giving credit to the source where possible as time affords.
