"This is a field in which I have absolutely no background, and extremely limited knowledge. However with current popularity of both the musical and movie, "War Horse", thought it would be interesting to search for man's ‘other' best friend, particularly in time of war.

Where known it may be a favorite/principal horse, or in some cases multiple horses. There is redundancy between the names in the first general list, and the second list which is limited to the American Civil War. Readers will not be surprised at the first named due to the principal subject matter of the blog. Readers who may have additional knowledge are encouraged to add to this database with information submitted in the Comments Section below…"
