"Opie left the Stonewall Brigade and campaigned as a cavalryman until 1864 capture; the remainder of the narrative recounts his experiences at Elmira" [Nevins]. Writing from Staunton, Virginia, he dedicates his memoir to his comrades with "the 'Clarke Cavalry,' a troop of Virginian horsemen, who served in the Confederate Army from Harper's Ferry to Appomattox ... The true type of the gentleman, the old-time Virginian, and the Southern horseman."
