June 28, 1863 - Kilpatrick is appointed commander of the 3d Division of Cavalry Corps, Army of the Potomac. During Gettysburg, General Pleasanton ordered a cavalry charge near Little Round Top. General Farnsworth protested the order saying it was futile. But Kilpatrick dared him and said, "Then, by God, if you are afraid to go I will lead the charge myself." Farnsworth then complied and was shot five times in the chest.
