  U.S. 1st Cavalry Division - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Headquarters facilities used by 1st Cavalry Division were those previously vacated by 8th United States Brigade when it was commanded by MG John J. Pershing in 1916, and the wartime 15th Cavalry Division, which had existed at Fort Bliss between 10 December 1917 and 12 May 1918.
The 7th, 8th, and 10th Cavalry Regiments were transferred on 13 September 1921, although the assignment of the 10th Cavalry Regiment to the 1st Cavalry Division was controversial because the transfer violated the Jim Crow laws.
Although the study did not lead to a general reorganization of the cavalry division, the wartime cavalry regiment was restructured, effective 1 December 1938, to consist of a headquarters and headquarters troop, machine gun and special weapons troops, and three squadrons of three rifle troops each.

 Rough Riders - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Recruitment for the regiment was done largely by Roosevelt, and resulted in a widely varied force consisting of seasoned ranch hands, Pawnee scouts, Ivy League athletes and east-coast polo players, among others who represented a broad cross-section of American society.
Still technically a cavalry unit, its mission was nevertheless perforce transformed to one of largely infantry-style fighting.
Joined by other units, notably elements of the 9th and 10th Regulars (African-American "buffalo soldiers"), the Rough Riders assaulted and eventually succeeded in securing the region, contributing to the victory of Santiago, which was probably the defining battle of the Cuban campaign.

By CAPTAIN WILLIAM H. The Sixth Regiment of Cavalry was organized as the Third Cavalry, under the President's proclamation of May 3, 1861; and the proclamation was confirmed by Act of Congress, July 29, 1861.
When near Brandy Station the regiment was ordered into position on the left of the road, and when the skirmish line on its left retired, it was in an exposed position which was promptly seen by the enemy, who attempted a flank attack with a column of cavalry.
The regiment arrived and during June was sent around the Indian reservation to drive in the Indians, but many of the worst had fled to the rocky fastnesses of the Mexican mountain peaks, and remained a thorn in the side of the army and the settlers for more than ten years.

Since the organization of the regiment, at no one time before had it been assembled together, so that for both officers and men there was a reasonable assurance that in the future their efforts would be consolidated, and that they should act as one body with one purpose.
An expedition was fitted out, (of which the 9th was a part), under Lieutenant Colonel Clarke, and ordered to pursue him after one of these characteristic raids, in which he had destroyed a large amount of hay and haying implements, had captured nearly a whole regiment of infantry and burned their quarters.
