Hi Larry,

The articles mention a couple of things, one, that @ 50 confederate canons were taken at Gettysburg & during the retreat, that must be inflated? How many were lost? Anyone?

Also it talks about JEB Stuart’s Cavalry screening for the ANV, JEB no doubt trying to make up to Lee, how effective were, they in helping Lee escape? Comments?

Thanks, & stay safe,
MD
