The third day of battle began with another unsuccessful attempt to take over and occupy Culp's Hill. Meanwhile, a mile east of Gettysburg a Confederate Cavalry of 6,000 troopers held orders to attack the Union rear. Union cavalry with a strength of 5,000 confronted them in a hot firefight that contained and turned the Confederates back. General Jeb Stuart led the southern forces and among the Union leadership was General George Armstrong Custer. Picture left: Cavalry Officer. Picture right: Culp's Hill
