I find myself drawn to the stories of the horse soldiers who fought the Civil War.  Perhaps it's the romance of it all--"if you want to have some fun, jine the cav'ry" and all of that.

Perhaps it's that I find the personalities compelling.

Perhaps it's a touch of Jimmy Buffett's "A Pirate Looks at Forty": "My occupational hazard is my occupation's just not around"

Whatever it is, I cannot escape the draw of it.  I think my record of topics addressed probably bears that out.
