Brandy Station
The Battle of Brandy Station
North America's Largest Cavalry Battle

Just before dawn on June 9, 1863, Union soldiers materialized from a thick fog near the banks of Virginia's Rappahannock River to ambush sleeping Confederates. The ensuing struggle, which lasted throughout the day, was to be known as the Battle of Brandy Station the largest cavalry battle ever fought on North American soil.

At dawn June 9, the Union cavalry corps under General Alfred Pleasonton launched a surprise attack on Confederate General J. Stuart's cavalry at Brandy Station.

After an all-day fight in which fortunes changed repeatedly, the Federals retired without discovering Lee's infantry camped near Culpeper.

This battle marked the apogee of the Confederate in the East. From this point in the war, the Federal cavalry gained strength and confidence.

Brandy Station was the largest cavalry battle of the war and the opening engagement of the Gettysburg Campaign.
