Union Flag Carrier LEVEL TWO
CIVIL WAR QUIZ #5
Confederate Flag Carrier




1) J. E. B. Stuart knew the game was up. Jackson's and Longstreet's forces were at least six miles away; his forces were being pressed by the Federal troops; and Captain Pelham was running out of ammunition. Reluctantly he withdrew two miles and made camp. The next day, when Jackson's and Longstreet's forces arrived, the Federals were too entrenched on the Heights for an assault to succeed. This was Stuart's last operation in the Seven Days. What was the name given to Stuart's brief encounter with the Federals on July 3, 1862?

2) What Southern General was called "The King of Spades"?

3) Lt. Colonel John Pelham, chief of Stuart's artillery, made a name for himself at Fredericksburg by stopping a Federal Corps for over an hour with two cannon, one of which was taken out early in the exchange. He moved and fired his gun so rapidly that the Union artillery thought they were fighting a whole battery. What state did the "Gallant" John Pelham come from?

4) What "pet" (if you can call it that) stayed with Robert E. Lee for a part of the war, sleeping under his cot at night?

5) A famous Union General went up in an observation ballon and later admitted that he was scared to death. When he asked the pilot if it was safe, the pilot jumped up and down in the basket, which did not add to the General's comfort. The General never went up again. Who was this famous Union General (Who was to become even more famous in the West after the war)?

6) At Gettysburg there are hundreds of monuments to soldiers of both sides in that battle. If the monument shows a soldier on a horse, what does it mean if one or more of the horse's feet are off of the ground?

7) John Mosby was such a problem to the Union forces, that a Union General ordered that if one of Mosby's men be captured he should be hanged. What Union General issued that order?

8) What three Union Generals did Jackson defeat in the Valley Campaign?

9) Who was Stuart talking about when he said that he died "with the battle-cry upon his lips and the light of victory beaming from his eye."

10) After Fredericksburg, Burnside tried to flank Lee by going up the Rappahannock river. Why did he fail?
