Thanks to the Longstreet Society, I just discovered Rhodes Hall in Atlanta, GA. Per their website:

“The interior of Rhodes Hall is one of the finest intact expressions of late Victorian architectural design in the city. The grandest feature is a magnificent series of painted glass windows above a carved mahogany staircase. Executed by the Von Gerichten Art Glass Company, winners of four gold medals at the St. Louis Exposition in 1904, the series depicts the rise and fall of the Confederacy from Fort Sumter to Appomattox and includes medallion portraits of fifteen key Confederate military and political figures.”

Among those key Confederate military figures is my favorite general, James Longstreet. I recognize my favorite general on the right and General Beauregard in the middle, but I need help identifying the fellow on the far left. Any ideas?

Have you ever visited Rhodes Hall? If you have or if you go, please post some pictures!
