  • Nice work! That's correct!
    Answer:

    Sabers.  The saber was a short, generally curved sword that had been optimized for use from a horse for centuries before the Civil War.  Although the revolver came to supersede the saber in many ways, most cavalrymen were still issued the blade as part of their standard kit.  Saber combat was not uncommon during the war.  The sight of saber wounds was often very demoralizing to nearby soldiers.
