The last two illustrations are by that great great artist Frederic Remington.
His prints/drawings are very important for us , they are of the period and done on the spot,  they give us some semblance of the way uniforms really were but looking at the prints and then looking at the Britain's cavalrymen we can see that the anachronism that Peter Cole of Replicants talked of is not really there so  there is little to distinquish the prints here from the soldiers except one thing; that very roughed up look and note that the gun does not have a cavalry holster.That's interesting.
