Dave,

Note that Sandoe was killed on 26 June, five days before the battle.

Being a cavalryman, he was, presumably, a casualty of skirmishing as the two armies sparred in the lead up to the battle .

Hi Phil,

Don't some CW Historians call this, and other skirmishes before July 1st, the 1st battle of Gettysburg? It is part of the precursor to the larger battle itself?

peace,
MD

BTW Larry, I made your story a read more, easier to get to!

Stickler for tradition that I am, Gettysburg has to be fought 1-3 July 1863, with a concession for skirmishes on 4 July !

But now I might reconsider...thanks for the link, Larry !

Phil,

IMHO Gettysburg starts with Ewell's attacks in the Valley to secure the route of approach to Falling Waters and the crossing of the ANVA back into Virginia.

I agree with John. The Gettysburg campaign starts with Ewell approaching Winchester VA and ends as the ANV soldier cross's the Potomac river back into Virginia. However Corp. William Rihl also has a unique claim.
