Jeb Stuart was an audacious cavalry commander, circumnavigating the Union Army and achieving great fame; but he failed to provide Lee with valuable information on the movements of the Union Army prior to the Battle of Antietam. On the first day of the battle his horse artillery fired on the Union right flank and, under orders from Jackson, was to begin a turning movement to attack the flank and rear. However, Stuart᾽s continued artillery bombardment was met with murderous Union counterbattery fire and his cavalry movement was never launched. Stuart saw action at most of the major battles fought by the Army of Northern Virginia including Fredericksburg and Gettysburg. He was killed at the Battle of Yellow Tavern.
This Jeb Stuart mug is part of our Civil War series profiling participants in the War Between the States. Thousands of Confederate and Union soldiers fought in battles such as Bull Run, Antietam, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, Vicksburg, Chattanooga, Cold Harbor and Petersburg. We honor their sacrifices by telling their stories.
The biographical History Mugs were created to teach and inspire individuals to learn about our diverse and interesting history. The biographies were researched and written by history enthusiast, Robert Compton. He colorized most of the historic photos and images used on the mugs, which were originally black and white or sepia tone. The images and biographies are imprinted on mugs at his studio in rural Vermont.
