On the crucial third day of the decisive Battle of Gettysburg, a newly-appointed brigadier general, age 23, commanded a full brigade of Michigan cavalrymen during his first major battle – George Armstrong Custer. He played a key role in saving the day in the Army of the Potomac’s rear by leading his four cavalry regiments to victory.
