  • Sorry, that's incorrect
    Answer:

    The Peninsula Campaign.  From June 12 to June 15, 1862, Stuart led 1,200 cavalrymen on a wide circle from the northern to southern end of the Union army outside of Richmond.  He took prisoners, stole supplies, and gathered intelligence while the Union cavalry, commanded by his father-in-law, struggled to keep up and never brought him to serious battle.  The maneuver was an enormous boost to Southern morale in the middle of some of the Confederacy's darkest days.
