James Ewell Brown "Jeb" Stuart, Commander of the Cavalry Corps of Northern Virginia, died on May 12, 1864 just a few blocks from this site of wounds sustained a day earlier during the Confederate defeat at Yellow Tavern, north of Richmond. He was 31.

The dynamic bronze sculpture, designed by Frederick Moynihan, captures Stuart's dashing, daring reputation. At the time of his death, he was considered the best cavalry officer in America. Stuart played an important role in the Confederate victories at Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville. But many blamed him for the Confederate defeat at Gettysburg because he failed to inform Confederate commander Robert E. Lee of Union positions early in the battle.

Plans for the monument began in 1875, but controversies concerning the selection of the site and design delayed the project. The sculptor was not selected until 1904. The unveiling was at the opening of the annual Confederate reunion on May 30, 1907. As the celebration continued, the Jefferson Davis Monument was unveiled on the avenue four days later.
