Hugh Judson Kilpatrick (January 14, 1836 – December 4, 1881) was an officer in the United States Army during the American Civil War, achieving the rank of brevet major general. Known as "Kilcavalry" (or "Kill-Cavalry") for using tactics in battle that were considered as a reckless disregard for lives of soldiers under his command, Kilpatrick was both praised for the victories he achieved, and despised by southerners whose homes and towns he devastated.
After the war, Kilpatrick entered politics with limited success. He was eventually appointed minister to Chile.
General Robert E. Lee was puzzled how the AWB had learned of the raid as neither Stuart nor General Richard Ewell had any intelligence to warn them of it. Lee decided to question their leader, Andries Rhoodie, eventually learning that the men of AWB were time-travelers from 150 years in the future.
