Note
  • Also includes text describing the action; organization (listing of Union and Confederate forces); regimental formations at the company level; and a map legend
  • "This map is a composite of Jedediah Hotchkiss map #32 from the Official Records and a 1987 USGS Topographic Map." The names of the two Union bridgades are reversed from what appears on the Hotchkiss map, according to information supplied by other historical accounts
  • A battle with inconclusive results, this was a "rare night operation" which took place during a snowstorm and was a mounted night attack. It began as a cavalry charge by the Confederate Gen. Rosser against the Union Gen. Custer, followed by the latter's counterattack and withdrawal. Approx. 600-700 Confederate and 3,000 Union cavalrymen were involved in this incident
