Message Detail:
Dave, a signal sergeant assigned to Fitz Lee raises the question of the purpose of this assignment. Could it be that, during the move of Stuart's three brigades towards and then around the Union army in June 1863, Stuart wanted to be able to communicate with Fitz Lee by signals. For example, during the ride north from Rockville, Fitz Lee's brigade sometimes served on the left flank to guard against a sudden attack -- especially after the capture of about 125 loaded wagons that were moving under Hampton's guard.
In other words, could Stuart have possibly assigned Capt. Frayser's signal sergeant temporarily to Fitz Lee for comms purposes while the brigades were on the move? Or do you think Fitz Lee's signal sergeant could have been a more or less permanent assignment to the brigade for comms purposes? Tom
