Dawn before Gettysburg
Edward Hopper, 1882-1967

Today is the 150th. anniversary of the final day of battle at Gettysburg, PA. The popularly named Pickett's Charge, and to me, the very important East Cavalry Battle took place on this day. General George Armstrong Custer, and his Michigan "Wolverines" quite possibly saved the day for the Union by sacrificing themselves to prevent General JEB Stuart from attacking the Union lines from behind. General Custer led, from the front, repeated charges and counter charges.
