REUNION IN ATLANTA, 1898. Longstreet was asked to attend and wear his old uniform, but that was burned up in the fire that destroyed his home. He agreed to attend with just his old trunk of a body, which he called "the only relic of the Confederacy" remaining to him. But his Augusta veterans had a new uniform made for him which he wore proudly as he was mobbed by his men. He was the star of the reunion.
