AM: 2 mile walk. Probably a day off unless I feel up for a short jog this evening.
On this day in 1861, Union General John Buford, commanding just one brigade of cavalry managed to delay the advance of the entire Confederate army north of the town of Gettysburg. This action gave the Union army time to occupy the high ground around Gettysburg which proved decisive in the ultimate Union vicrory.
Despite this, no major U.S. military installation is named after General Buford while several are named for the men he defeated that day. Sad.
