2. The Retreat from Gettysburg. Imboden's command covered the western flank of Lee's Army during the Gettysburg Campaign, raiding and doing damage to railroads and other transportation links. When time came to retreat, Imboden was charged with securing the supply trains and many wounded. He did so with great skill and determination. That the Army of Northern Virginia lived to fight another day is due in no small part to Imboden's command.

5. John Imboden
A post-war photo. Not a professional soldier, Imboden began the war commanding a battery of artillery at First Manassas. Transferring to the Cavalry, he formed a company of partisan rangers. Promoted to command a brigade, Imboden's men were accomplished raiders but also served well in conjunction with the field armies.
