Well an interesting way to see a new Longstreet photo but the Civil War Trust tweeted this a few minutes ago.

Joking aside, has anyone seen that Longstreet picture before? It is a new one to me. He looks a little bit older so I assume it is after the war?

Yes indeed!! As strange as it seems to say this about someone who could be one's great, great, grandmother, I find her to be strikingly beautiful...
