Cavalry of General Banks

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“A reconnoitring detachment of General Banks’s cavalry, Hyattstown, Md., in the distance. There are few sights more picturesque than a detachment of cavalry winding along the road to some quiet little village. Nature and man seem then so little in harmony that the contradiction becomes strikingly attractive. Our illustration represents a scene of this kind- a detachment of Federal cavalry, sent by order of General Banks, reconnoitring in the neighborhood of Hyattstown, a post village of Montgomery County, Md., and situated on Bennett’s Creek, about thirty-six miles to the northwest of Washington.” —Leslie, 1896
