|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.
