They used the double action .38 early in the conflict, switching back to the SA .45 Peacemaker as a result of the .38's ineffectiveness. Dates probably varied from unit to unit. It looks like the cavalry was armed to the teeth with rifle & sword also. Krag 1896's, a carbine version was available late in the conflict also.
