Quiz Question Image
  • Sorry, that's incorrect
    Answer:

    George Custer.  Custer led the 6th Michigan regiment at Gettysburg.  On the third day of the battle J.E.B. Stuart launched an attack on the rear of the Union army across a stretch of land now known as East Cavalry Field.  Had he been successful, the outcome of Pickett's Charge, and of the battle, could have been very different.  The stubborn resistance of Custer and the Union cavalry protected the Union position on Cemetery Ridge.  The Civil War Trust has preserved more than 270 acres of the crucial East Cavalry Field.
