|Stuart arrived w/ much needed supplies, a wagon train of them. What he didn't arrive w/ was a good picture of the enemy. I think a lot more is made of the supposed failure of Stuart than was made at the time. Stuart was an easy scapegoat post war for the failure at Gettysburg because he was dead and unable to defend himself.
Given my druthers I would call Stuart & Hampton the two finest CS Cav officers East of the Appalachians and their only competition on the CS military being Forrest who was anything but a traditional Cav officer.
