Praise for Buford's role at Gettysburg has always confused me.

In the face of Meade's plan (the Pipe Creek circular), a cavalry division commander decides to 'hold at all costs' a position that permanently wrecks one army corps and almost another?

Hunt was with Meade all day. They arrived at Cemetery Hill together about midnight. He was not involved in the fighting on the first. In fact, there was no significant fighting after Hancock arrived, much less the repulse of a corps on Cemetery Hill.


Cheers,
