The Civil War in the East

C.S.A. - Army of Northern Virginia - Second Corps

Early's Division

Major General Jubal Early (until 5/8)

Brigadier General John B. Gordon (5/8-5/21)

Brigadier General Stephen Dodson Ramseur (after 5/22)


When A.P. Hill was forced by illness on May 8 to temporarily step down from commanding the Third Corps, General Lee took extreme steps to replace him with Jubal Early. Hays' Brigade was transferred to Rodes' Division in exchange for Johnston's Brigade so that John Gordon, who was outranked by Hays, could take command of the division as senior brigadier. After Early returned, Gordon's Brigade was transferred to Johnson's Division so that Gordon could take command after Johnson had been captured in the Mule Shoe.
