Hussars Attacking Coney Island

This can't be serious, can it?...

MILITARY.--The officers, commissioned and non-commissioned, had their second drill yesterday afternoon in the City Park, preparatory to the general parade of the regiment, next Wednesday, at the same place.

A company of hussars, supposed to be that of Capt. Marx, passed up Fulton street this morning from New York. It is supposed they have gone on a secret expedition against Coney Island, as no one of whom we inquired could enlighten us on that point.

--Brooklyn Daily Eagle, Thursday, June 15, 1848

Looks like the Hussars were probably cavalry.
