Calvary is the name of a place, the hill where Christ was said to be crucified.

Cavalry is a term used to describe horse-mounted soldiers, although modern cavalry regiments are mechanized. It comes from the Italian word 'cavallo' meaning horse. Also from cavallo comes the word cavaliere, meaning knight (or mounted soldier), which in french is 'chevalier', from which comes the word 'chivalry' in English.

You're confusing Calvary (cricifixion locale) and cavalry (military group)

The type of weapon used by a cavalry depends on the cavalry. Common cavalry weapons include sabres, lances, and in earlier times, bows.

You mean Calvary, not cavalry, right? Calvary is a name for the place where Jesus Christ was crucified. It is also called Golgotha. Some churches use it as part of the church name, and you would need to ask the members, preachers, or founders of each such church to find out why. Cavalry, an entirely different word, is soldiers mounted on horses. A cavalry church might consist of an army chaplain and the horseback troops who attend his religious services.

Calvary is the name of the site of the crucifixion of Jesus just outside Jerusalem; it has absolutely nothing to do with the American Civil War.I guess you mean cavalry and it is possible to argue in favour of any of the many cavalry officers on both sides. My personal vote would be for the US General Benjamin Grierson. It is interesting to note that at the time, several prominent cavalry officers declared that both the Sioux and the Comanche were the "finest light cavalry in the world", a term neverused to describe either Union or Confederate cavalry troops.

Certainly Jefferson Davis had a good number of flaws, and with that said, he correctly assessed that a strong calvary should be developed for the Confederate army. As a soldier, Davis had served on the frontier as a dragoon, and some of his senior generals had served in the US cavalry. With the support of these generals, the South soon equalled the size of the Union calvary and exceeded it in effectiveness. The Confederate calvary developed a major role in raiding Union communications.

Golgotha was called CALGARY, not cavalry. It is just a name for it in a different language.

Custer's Calvary experienced defeat at the Battle of Little Big Horn. Indians following Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse pretty much wiped out Custer's seventh Calvary during that battle, when the Indians fought to stay off reservations.

Black cavalry soldiers in the Civil War and later periods of history were referred to as "buffalo soldiers." This was in reference to the coarseness of their hair, in comparison to that of a bison.

The distance from Rome to Jerusalem is roughly 1426 miles. So that would be an estimate of the distance between the Colosseum and what is thought to be Calvary.The distance from Rome to Jerusalem is roughly 1426 miles.
