Where is my stupid scout, JEB Stuart? I'm operating blind here.
General Lee decided to attempt another invasion of the north. This was mostly to draw fire off of the farms during the growing season. His scout, Jeb Stuart wasn't reporting to him, leaving him blind in enemy territory, because of this he ran into a Union force.
General Lee ran right into Union solider's, however, his forces were bigger, so he was able to push them back. The Union forces retreated to cemetery ridge. One of Lee's generals hesitated in attacking, giving the them time to regroup. both forces called for reinforcements
