      The Trooper's Manual: Or, Tactics for Light Dragoons and Mounted Riflemen by Col. J. Lucius Davis, CSA () Maury, Dabney Skirmish Drill for Mounted .   The light dragoons’ galloping charge broke Tarleton’s troopers and the British turned and fled down a narrow causeway between swamp and marsh with the rest of Washington’s men hard on their trail. Tarleton’s men then bottlenecked at a narrow point in the causeway before the bridge at Rantowle’s Creek.

    It is hard to envision the mounted Kentuckians being successful vs any kind of mounted opponent (in similar numbers- it was a rather big unit for Wo).

Light cavalry; average to small but strong men, mounted on fast nimble horses, skilled in the cut and thrust of skirmishing. The eyes and ears of an army, the tasks of advance patrols and reconnoitring, guarding the flanks and rear of the columns, cutting off the enemy’s supplies and communication, &c., fell to the light cavalry regiments.

Being inside enemy lines the Rangers and 17th Dragoons discretely retired. In this action only one Dragoon, Lt. Lindsay, was wounded in the hand. Although he had successfully coordinated his activities with riflemen and infantry commanders, these exploits left Lee with the reputation of being a "glory hound" unable to work with other mounted units.
