union cavalry sabres

I have read the rules and cannot see a reason why union cavalry are mentioned as having sabres. Could anyone tell me why it is mentioned and the benefits or not, also some cross reference to the rules would be handy. Thanks in advance Kevin.

There's no special rule or benefit to having sabres - it's just a weapon they use in Fisticuffs.
Faith! If they tried to outrun a Hielandmon, they stood but a bad chance, for Whash! went the broadsword.
