The Last Camel Charge

The Last Camel ChargeIn the mid-nineteenth century, the U.S. Army would employ a weapon that had never before been seen on its native soil. From the Middle East came a cavalry mount that would fare better than both mules and horses in the American Southwest. Against the Mojave in the Arizona Territory…against the Mormons in Utah Territory…during the early stages of the Civil War, the camel would become one of America’s great military experiments, and a nearly forgotten chapter of Americana.
