The Calvary

In part 36 of our Civil War series, Virginia Tech history professor James Robertson recounts a calvary battle in Richmond on the northern outskirts of the town at the hamlet of Yellow Tavern. It pitted Union General Phillip Sheridan against General Jeb Stuart, the embodiment of a Virginia cavalier.
