At the time of the Civil War gentlemen were expected to be skilled riders, this is especially true of military officers. Still some military officers who were considered especially skill horsemen did not grow up in households that had top level riding horses. I think Grant would be a good example of this. So which generals were considered especially skilled horsemen and did they grow up riding horses?
