General Milroy - General John B. Gordon (black horse captured but proved to be of a treacherous disposition, running from the guns) He got rid of it quick.

It is believed this horse; was General Milroy's when Milroy was bucked off around the 'guns' and then captured by the CSA.

Also called "Old Milroy;" probably ridden by BGen. Gordon at Gettysburg. It is likely the horse described by Robert Stiles as a "beautiful coal-black stallion" that was captured at Winchester.
