Hey Gang! Ready For A History Lesson?

Well, we're almost into July and you know what that means...Gettysburg info!

June 30, 1863:

Major General J.E.B. Stuart's cavalry, which was riding north to get around the Union army, attacked a Union cavalry regiment, driving it through the streets of Hanover.

Brigadier General Farnsworth's brigade arrived and counterattacked, routing the Confederate vanguard and nearly capturing Stuart himself. Stuart counterattacked.

Reinforced by Brigadier General George A. Custer's brigade, Farnsworth held his ground, and a stalemate ensued. Stuart was forced to continue north and east to get around the Union cavalry, further delaying his attempt to rejoin Lee's army which was then concentrating at Cashtown Gap west of Gettysburg.

Info found here.

Here's a really cool video I found:
