Eric,  Hi, and yes, that gives me a frame of reference that I didn't have about the structure of the cavalry.  After reading about the battle at Gettysburg and touring areas of the battlefield I learned about the role of Buford's cavalry on 6/30 and 7/1.  I also had a park ranger-directed tour south of Round Top where Elan Farnsworth was killed in Kilpatrick's charge. (I particularly liked the statue of Wells from Vermont in that area).  I also drove around East Cavalry Battlefield where Custer fought Stuart.  What I'm saying is "have I missed something?"  I mean, was Confederate cavalry involved anywhere on the battlefield at Gettysburg?  Seems I've only been hearing of Union Cavalry involvement.
