The Gettysburg Campaign is in its opening hours.
Harnesses jingle and hooves pound as Confederate cavalryman James Ewell Brown (JEB) Stuart leads three brigades of veteran troopers on a ride that triggers one of the Civil War's most enduring controversies.
Plenty of Blame to Go Around: Jeb Stuart's Controversial Ride to Gettysburg is the new book that is the most detailed and comprehensive narrative of Stuart's ride to Pennsylvania in June and July 1863 ever written, and explores the historiography of the resulting controversy like never before.
"Here, then, is Stuart's ride as the troopers on both sides would recognize it - well researched, vividly written, and shrewdly argued."
- Mark Grimsley, author of The Hard Hand of War: Union Military Policy Toward Southern Civilians, 1861-1865
