"join the cavalry" (rejoignez la cavalerie) était un chant militaire très populaire pendant la guerre de Sécession.  Les différents couplets de cette chanson vantent les mérites et les exploits de Jeb Stuart et de ses hommes de la cavalerie de Virginie du Nord, tandis que le refrain exhorte l'auditeur à "rejoindre la cavalerie".

Cette oeuvre, aussi connue sous le titre "Jine la cavalerie", était l'une des chansons préférées de Stuart, et est devenue l'hymne officieux de son corps de cavalerie confédérée.
Elle raconte les premiers exploits de Stuart, en revenant notamment sur sa "chevauchée autour de l'armée du Potomac" début de l'été 1862, et sur le raid confédéré sur Chambersburg en Octobre 1862.

Un des hommes de Stuart, un certain Sam Sweeney, était un joueur de banjo confirmé ; Il joua souvent ce morceaux devant Stuart et ses officiers au cours de la campagne de Gettysburg.

D'ailleurs à priori le "Jine" est une contraction de langage retranscrite, un peu comme le "oi!" cockney pour" hey you!"

“Holiness does not consist in mystic speculations, enthusiastic fervours, or uncommanded austerities; it consists in thinking as God thinks, and willing as God wills."

“Be mild with the mild, shrewd with the crafty, confiding to the honest, rough to the ruffian, and a thunderbolt to the liar."
