A new look at an old question. Mark Nesbit offers a compelling conclusion to the long-debated question of J.E.B. Stuart's conduct prior to the battle of Gettysburg. Using General Lee's own orders and the orders and conduct of other general officers during the days before Gettysburg, the argument is made that Stuart was following the specific orders of Lee and was not neglecting his duty in favor of personal fame. A must read for anyone interested in the Confederate Calvary, Gettysburg and the Lee-Stuart controversy.
