|I will accept the premise of Carhart's book, but it leaves one very unanswered question. If the cavalry were so important to the battle plan why did Stuart not attempt to reach his objective with more fervor. Carhart gives the causality figures and they were extremely low (I dont have the book in front of me to dig them out) which implies that Stuart must not have put too much importance on his encircling the Union forces.
If someone could explain this I'd love to hear.
