I portrayed the general for almost a decade. I also spoke with Robert Trout who portrayed the general for years and has been closer than anyone to the story of Stuart out side the family. If he carried or owned a Maynard, we or I have never heard of it. He did own several personal weapons. He carried the LeMat until the fall of 1863, and if I remember correctly it broke on him and he started carrying his old weapon with was a Whitney Navy .36 caliber Revolver. That is the weapon he was carrying at Yellow Tavern when he was shot. In 1999 I visited the Museum of the Confederacy in Richmond and they had the display of his personal items which included those from the Virginia Historical Society. There is the offhand possiblity that he did own a Maynard. The JEB Stuart Birthplace Preservation Society & Trust may be another good place to ask.
