Thanks again for the reply. My period of interest is actually the mid-1870's western cavalry. Would the manual you referenced apply to that period as well?
Everything I've read so far seems to refer to Companies during that period and I've seen the terms squad and platoon used interchangably for sub-divisions of companies but I'm guessing one is more correct than the other. Was there a newer cavalry manual in use in the mid 1870's that you are aware of?
