This artwork by renowned historical artist Mort Künstler depicts Generals Lee and Stuart at Gettysburg. Mort Künstler writes, “To me, one of the pivotal historical developments in the Battle of Gettysburg was the absence of General Robert E. Lee's cavalry during most of the battle. Lee really depended on his cavalry, which he called the eyes of his army, but his courageous cavalry commander , General J.E.B. Stuart, had taken his horsemen on a raid far away from the action at Gettysburg. As a consequence, Lee was unable to effectively monitor the Northern troop dispositions during the crucial first two days of battle.” For more, continue reading on the Mort Künstler website.
