1. Gen. J.E.B. Stuart Marker
Inscription.  Gen. J.E.B. Stuart with three brigades of Confederate cavalry, commanded by Wade Hampton, Fitzhugh Lee and John R. Chamblis (sic), in all 6,000 men, entered Dover on the morning of July 1, 1863, the day after the Battle of Gettysburg opened. Stuart had been defeated by Kilpatrick’s cavalry at Hanover June 30 and marched all night with a train of 125 wagons through Jefferson and York New Salem to Dover in order to meet Early’s infantry division which had taken possession of York on June 28. After Stuart had heard that Early had withdrawn from York he marched with his entire column toward Carlisle, and from thence to Gettysburg. Before leaving Dover he paroled about 250 Union prisoners who had been captured at Hanover and elsewhere.
 
Erected 1907 by citizens of Dover.
