Busy Spur
Busy Spur
This is the boot of Union General John Sedgwick at West Point. He was killed in the Battle of Spotsylvania Court House in 1864. Legend holds that if a cadet is deficient in academics, the cadet should go to the monument at midnight the night before the term-end examination, in full dress, under arms, and spin the rowels on the monument‚??s spurs. With the resulting good luck, the cadet will pass the test. Practically impossible as the area is patrolled and it is against regulations if you get caught.
