Benefield Conway Dailey

Article From William B. Conway Correcting History Of Black Horse Cavalry.

THE BLACK HORSE CAVALRY.-William B. Conway, M. D. of Athens, Ga., a member of that command writes: "In the VETERAN of February, 1915, page 86, appears a notice from William H. H. Benefield, of Pendleton, Ind., concerning one Edward Dailey, who, he said, was a member of the Ashby's Black Horse Cavalry (3d Virginia). The Black Horse Cavalry company did not belong to Ashby's command, nor was it in the 3d Virginia Cavalry Regiment. The Black Horse Cavalry was composed mostly of men from Fauquier County, Va., and belonged to my regiment, the 4th Virginia Cavalry Regiment. A more gallant band of troopers never flashed a blade."
