Stuart's intentions may have been good, but his detour ended up taking longer than he anticipated because for one thing he was burdened and slowed by a large Union wagon train he captured and also he met some stiff opposition along his route. Lack of communication with Lee's Army further complicated matters. I often wonder how different that Civil War would have been if the Union and Confederates had just had cell phones.
