I think the Buford praise comes from him not doing the Typical Union Cavalry thing to this point. See Infantry and Run not maintain good ground long enough to confuse Confederate Command. The Ridge to Ridge Fall back the Stacking up of Heath's Division. Granted this was a 100% failure in the terms of the Battle of the 1st day. The Confederates took the Town but in the sence of the Battle as a whole the 1st day at Gettysburg set the tone of the next two days and more or less gave the rest of the Union Army the Really good ground of Cemetary Ridge and Cemetary Hill and eventually Little Round Top
