    Sorry to say me missed John S Mosby's birthday. Dec 6. Happy Belated birthday to a man who kept the union boys running like chickens with their heads cut off.

    Regarding cavalry tactics, Mosby supposedly said, "I have found the saber to be of no use against gunpowder." His memoirs make very interesting reading.

    Years ago they found where the Gray Ghost hide when not attacking the Yankee's. They for what ever reason devertied(sp) a stream and under a water fall was a cave. In the cave they found it was Mosby's hide out during the war. It was in the same shape as when he left the cave.
