The primary function of the cavalry was intelligence seeking. It was used to screen such intelligence and to rush to selected hot spots. Rarely was the cavalry used to engaged in all out warfare with infantry divisions. As the war years declined, the cavalry's role diminished and the past fighting of sword and pistol fell by the wayside. New use of the cavalry saw a dismounted role with repeating rifles. Commanders found this to be highly effective.
