Horse cavalry, that is.  Surprisingly, in the Philippines during WWII.

I didn't know that. But kudos to them for trying it!

Overlapping bit of trivia.

The Gatling gun was, finally, withdrawn from US military service in 1911.

The M1903 Gatling was chambered in the same .30 caliber round as the M1903 rifle (first .30-03 then .30-06).
