Does anyone know of any examples where the M1860 Cavalry Sword was determinant in a battle during the Civil War ? I know that in previous wars the cavalry saber was the primary sidearm for fighting from horseback, but I have the sense that changed at the Civil War and relegated the cavalry saber to a not often used historical ornament. Am I wrong about that ? Was the CW period cavalry sword ever used during battle in a crucial way ?
