Mission of the 8th Confederate Cavalry

The 8th Confederate "Skeleton" Cavalry should always try to maintain it's cameraderie, it's love of history, and it's desire to constantly improve our impression that we show the public, by researching the tactics, the uniforms, the equipment, and the actual men of the regiment from 1861 till it left the field in 1865, and bring our knowledge to the education of the public in a fun and safe manner.
