More on Carhart's "Lost Triumph"

Perusing old newspaper records, IPBiz came across an article "Pickett's Charge: a blot on Lee's Military Record?" which appeared in the Kansas City Star in the year 1913 (specifically at page 12 of volume 33, issue 289, dated July 3, 1913), which is 50 years after Pickett's Charge (and East Cavalry Field) and 92 years before Carhart's book. The relevant text is as follows:

Another phase of Lee's assault failed unexpectedly. Stuart with his cavalry was supposed to get in the rear of the Union forces and harry their lines of communication. Union cavalry under Gregg met Stuart and gave him a decisive defeat, north and east of the main battle.
