“Game legged cusses and wagon rats: The Far Right of the Confederate Line on 3 July 1863.” featuring LBG Rob Abbott
Everyone knows of JEB Stuart’s cavalry action on the far left of the CSA line on 3 July, but what about the of the mixed Confederate cavalry force protecting the General Lee’s right flank? Join LBG Rob Abbott as we meet Col John Black, 1st SC Cavalry and his band of “game legged cusses and wagon rats” as they square off with Union BG Wesley Merritt on 3 July 1863. The walk will set the stage for the creation of COL Black’s force, walk west to the US Cavalry markers near the Battlefield B&B, walk west on Merritt Avenue and then return. This is NOT a BG Farnsworth discussion. The walk will be easy.
Meeting Place: Battlefield Bed & Breakfast Parking Lot (2264 Emmitsburg Road, Gettysburg, PA 17325)
