“The Army was much embarrassed by the absence of the cavalry,” Robert E. Lee wrote of the Gettysburg campaign, stirring a controversy that continues even today. Lee’s statement was an indirect indictment of Gen. James Ewell Brown (“Jeb”) Stuart, who was the cavalry. This book reexamines the questions that have shadowed the legendary Confederate hero and offers a fresh, informed interpretation of his role at Gettysburg.

Avoiding the partisan pros and cons characterizing previous accounts, Warren C. Robinson reassesses the historical record to come to a clearer view of Stuart’s orders for the crucial battle (as well as what was expected of him), of his actual performance, and of the impact his late arrival had on the outcome of the campaign. Though Stuart may not have disobeyed Lee’s orders, Robinson argues, he did abuse the general’s discretion by raiding Washington rather than scouting for the army at Gettysburg—a move that profoundly affected Confederate fortunes and perhaps the war itself.

Review:

"This is an enthralling work of history."--Maj. Jeffrey C. Alfier, USAF, Ret./i>--Maj. Jeffrey C. Alfier"Military Review" (04/03/2008)

"The last chapter, 'The Consequences of Stuart's Raid, ' was most fascinating and enlightening. The author renders seven judgments on the raid, and each is worthy of its own professional dissertation. . . . Surely [the author] has produced a book that causes one to re-examine cherished ideas about [the Gettysburg campaign]. You may come away holding your former beliefs, but you will be forced to reexamine them. This book is a must for anyone interested in the Gettysburg campaign."--Charles H. Bogart, "Journal of America's Military Past" --Charles H. Bogart"Journal of America's Military Past" (04/22/2008)

Warren C. Robinson is a professor emeritus at Pennsylvania State University. He is the editor of numerous works in the field of economics and the author of many articles on military history and policy. He is currently a freelance writer and consultant based in Washington DC. "This brief book offers a fascinating re-consideration of the long-debated question of why Jeb Stuart and his Confederate cavalry were not present at the beginning of the Battle of Gettysburg and what the result of their absence might have been. . . . [Robinson's] examination of Stuart's controversial role in the campaign is well researched, carefully reasoned, and engagingly written."ÑJournal of Military History "Mr. Robinson has examined a considerable amount of data and presents well-argued and at times provocative conclusions about one of the Civil War's most controversial events."ÑThomas J. Ryan, Washington Times "[Robinson's] relative objectivity allows him to detail the events involving Stuart in a meaningful and intelligent way. As a good historian should, he looks at the record of events and, more importantly, the context of the events."ÑJohn Deppen, Civil War News "This is an enthralling work of history."ÑMaj. Jeffrey C. Alfier, USAF, Ret., Military Review "Well-written, insightful, and penetrates the shroud of romanticism, myth, and recriminations surrounding General Robert E. Lee, Major General J.E.B. Stuart, and the Confederate defeat at Gettysburg. . . . Rather than writing a narrative tome, Robinson presents a cogent and surprisingly quick read that focuses on the polemic assertions surrounding the battle. . . . The book will quickly become a seminal work on the battle of Gettysburg. Robinson's analysis and separation of fact and myth in the events contributing to the absence of Confederate cavalry during the first two days of the battle makes this a must-read book for military historians and enthusiasts alike."ÑSouthern Historian "Well organized and clearly written."ÑJournal of Southern History (Key Words: Confederate Army, Robert E. Lee, Battle of Gettysburg, General James Ewell Brown Jeb Stuart, Warren C. Robinson, United States Civil War, Military History, Confederate Cavalry). book. Seller Inventory # 81007X1
