Let’s talk about the Union left flank during the Battle of New Market!
The Union cavalry under General Julius Stahel made a fateful charge into Confederate artillery and the 54th Pennsylvania Infantry Regiment anchored the Union flank and also made a memorable charge. What can we learn about the Battle of New Market by taking a closer look at these fights on the east side of the lines?
This video takes another look at the history, goes “on location”, and I’ll reveal something kinda crazy that I did on one of my visits to New Market and how that influenced my perception on that cavalry charge…
