    If JEB Stuart was such a brilliant cavalry commander why would he tolerate Fitz Lee’s brigade commanded by Col. Thomas Munford to “dilly dally” while such a critical fight was occuring on Fleetwood Hill and subsequently Yew’s Ridge. It would seem that ultra capable regiments like the 1st,2nd,3rd and 4th Virginia (the 5th Va. was on picket duty) cavalry’s, more or less the A team, not being committed to the fight cost any chance at the Rebels gaining the upper hand. I find this glaring omission on Stuart’s part to be the beginning of a pattern where he continually committed his troops in irregular and inconsistent fashions that put his troops at a disadvantage. Is this a fair observation?
