    Captain for the Confederate Cavalry by March 16 th 1861 Once Stuart s gallant behavior from the battle field leaked out to the local and CSA national press he became a well known war hero During the war up until Gettysburg Stuart s ego increasingly inflated It is thought that his perceived reputation clouded his decision making capacity and led him to misinterpret the orders as evidenced in his defensiveness in his recollections Allegedly his ego had negatively influenced the loss at Brandy Station Critics hoped that this was his punishment and he d learn from this blunder Gettysburg served that function instead Stuart sought total redemption approaching Gettysburg He genuinely felt he was carrying out his duty to General Lee despite his route south towards Washington D C This may explain Stuart s prolonged arrival at Gettysburg and so negligence in delivering obsolete or unhelpful intelligence to Lee about the Federals He claimed that he misread the order for him to stay near to Lee and Gettysburg run interference and gather intelligence and send it to the higher ranking officials Instead of completing his mission he covered hundreds of miles and missed most of the battle and the opportunity to potentially save the Confederacy Lee was extremely upset with Stuart and Stuart felt privately shameful about it He rode up to the battle on the Union s flank and hoped to surprise attack the Union at Gettysburg however by that time the Union developed an adequate cavalry to combat and hold off the Confederacy s To many Stuart lost the battle and maybe even the war To others he had an honest mistake at the worst possible time in his career and it may have cost him his life just months later Citations Paul D Escott The Uses of
