Re Cavalry Losses[edit]

"They suffered almost 200 casualties in the battle, an unprecedented loss for a cavalry brigade." This line seems a bit sensational, especially given losses that Union mounted units suffered later in the war. Might some context, such as 'losses higher than Union cavalry had seen prior to this time' be more appropriate?Intothatdarkness (talk) 20:25, 30 July 2010 (UTC)
