More > cavalry officer, he served in some of the bloodiest battles of the war and was a POW twice, returning to active combat after release. He often spent 18 hours a day on horseback as Lee's army campaigned to Gettysburg, through the Appalachians, and back to Richmond, and as Stuart's regiments provided the swift patrolling.
