Real War Horses
Sat, March 25, 2017, 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM GMT
We are very pleased to welcome historian and author Anthony Dawson from the University of Leeds to the York Army Museum . Anthony is an acknowledged expert on the history of the British Army in the nineteenth century and has made special study of the Crimean War.
Anthony will be presenting a talk about the changing role and experiences of the cavalry through a century of warfare from 1814-1914 and about research for his recent book Real War Horses which draws on many primary sources, unpublished accounts, personal letters and local and national newspaper articles.
There will be an opportunity to view the museum, and Anthony will be happy to sign copies of his book, available from the museum shop.
