Early's cavalry, two divisions under Lomax and Rosser, is not enumerated in the record. Battles and Leaders gives it at 2,900; or a total of 15,680. But such was the condition of our cavalry that it was almost a negligible quantity, and Lomax, with the largest division, never got under fire. Jurdon's) left. How that occurred is thus told in General Custer's report: About II A. M. I was directed to transfer my command again to the right flank and take charge of affairs. . .
