J.E.B. Stuart

General James Ewell Brown “Jeb” Stuart, an 1854 graduate of West Point, was one of the most colorful commanders of the Civil War. Stuart led the Cavalry Corps of the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia from 1862 until his death at the Battle of Yellow Tavern on May 12, 1864. A dashing cavalryman, Stuart was the epitome of the Southern cavalier and was known for his distinctive uniform, wearing a yellow sash around his waist and an ostrich plume in his hat. Although Stuart showed brilliance at times, he is most often criticized for his detachment from General Robert E. Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia during the Gettysburg Campaign, depriving Lee of his “eyes” during a critical period. At the time of his death, Jeb Stuart was 31 years old.
