Battle of Appomattox Station

Maj. Gen. George A. Custer’s division of Union cavalry captured a supply train and twenty-five guns, driving off and scattering the Confederate defenders.  This unique action pitted artillery without infantry support against cavalry. Custer captured and burned three trains loaded with provisions for Lee’s army.
