Gregg's cavalry at Gettysburg Major J. Edward Carpenter. Little has been written of the stubborn fight which took place on the 3d of July, 1863, on the right of the Union line at Gettysburg, between the cavalry command of General David McM. Gregg, and that of the Confederate Chief of Cavalry, General J. E. B. Stuart. In an article published in the weekly times of March 31st, 1877, entitled, The Union cavalry in the Gettysburg campaign, by General Gregg, it is stated: On the 3d, during that terrific fire of artillery which preceded the gallant but unsuccessful assault of Pickett's Division on our line, it was discovered that Stuart's cavalry was moving to our right with the evident intention of passing to the rear to make a simultaneous attack there. What the consequence of the success of this movement would have been, the merest tyro in the art of war will understand.

ng and demoralizing that portion of Rodes' line, and causing it to halt for a time sufficient to allow the artillery and troops at Hazel Grove to take position, and the cavalry to re-form and collect other troops between the enemy and Chancellorsville. In this brilliant charge the sabre alone was relied upon as a weapon. Five officers led the cavalry; of these, three were killed: Major Peter Keenan, Captain Charles Arrowsmith, and Adjutant John Hazeltine Haddock. The horse of Captain J. Edward Carpenter was shot under him, and the commanding officer alone escaped with horse and rider unhurt.—Ed. but when the Confederates, staggered for a time by this unexpected shock, are at last emerging from the wood, they are received by a fire of grapeshot from the twenty-two pieces of cannon, most of them belonging to the Third corps, which Pleasonton has thus secured time to get together and turn against them. The first discharge dismounts the only two pieces of cannon that the Confederate
